Saw surgeon today and got MRI results. NO RESIDUAL TUMOR! the chemo melted it all.
The standard of care is still to do surgery to remove the tissue in the region the tumor was. This, in theory, will remove any cells that may not be visualized on the MRI. do not have a date for that scheduled yet. It will be an outpatient procedure with 4-6 week recovery time. Then onto radiation.
It's been a little over a week since my last chemo treatment. I'm still getting some GI and cardiac and respiratory side effects. Will likely take a few more weeks before those settle down some more. Tired of being tired...
So all is good here. Will continue to ride out the storm!
