Scan update

My CT scan after radiation looked good! The spots on my liver shrunk down to what they think is just scar tissue. Most importantly, there is no new disease. So while I can't quite say "NED", I've gone over a year without new disease and that's a big accomplishment. 

I'll spend the next two months recovering and enjoying a long awaited break, and in December I'll have a pet scan. For now I am just going to be watched closely and be thankful for the health I have right now. My doctor says I am "lightyears ahead" of his other patients with pancreatic cancer and for that I feel very fortunate!

Hi Catherine, I just read your story on the American Cancer society's page. What a journey you've been on for one so young. You are brave and an inspiration to all. I pray for a complete recovery and a NED diagnosis for you.
Hope you had a merry Christmas and that your health remains well! How did your scan go?
