… that the results of the bone marrow biopsy I had last week have come back clear – I don’t have Multiple Myeloma but will have to still have some radiation treatment around the area of the rib resection. Then they will keep monitoring me to make sure that the Plasmacytoma hasn’t progressed to Multiple Myeloma but even it it does, that could be a few years down the track.
I also had a CT scan last week in another attempt to find out where the fallopian/ovarian cancer has returned as my CA125 levels are still steadily rising. The results of this came back clear too leaving the doctors more puzzled than ever. The only area they haven’t scanned is the head/brain so I am now down to have one of these and only hope they don’t find anything there either. On a lighter note, they probably won’t find anything anyway!!! Think my brain ran away a long time ago!
All these tests and hospital visits lately are the main reason I haven’t been blogging. Actually, I was feeling rather down and depressed at the thought of trying to cope with two cancers as I am finding it hard enough with one so now that at least one worry is lifted from me I am feeling a lot more positive.
I do have some cards and other news to share with you, but just wanted to let you know how relieved and thankful I am with my clear prognosis. I will post again in the next couple of days.
