Alles Klar, Herr Kommissar

I just got a call from my oncologist's office - literally, like ten minutes ago.  The results of the CT and PET scans came in.  All clear.

So there are no tumors that were detectable by the scans.  Most likely I'll still undergo the next stage of chemotherapy, because (1) that's the standard protocol) and (2) I've wanted to treat this aggressively since day 1 and (to quote Tom Petty again) I won't back down.

I also had a follow-up with my surgeon, which was probably the last time I'll see him.  He wanted to know if the surgical wounds are healing on schedule (they are) and if I had any post-surgical complications (I don't). I did get a lovely parting gift, a new prescription for percocet.  Maybe I'll bring some to Lot 8 for a tailgate.  Opiates and beer, combination therapy.

    Hey, great news. Thanks for the link to PSW. You must have a lot of readers, I found your blog from our google analytics. Best of luck, and thanks for reading/sharing. Let us know if we can help in any way.

  4. Great to hear. Too bad about more chemo, but better safe than sorry. And tell us again why do you need more drugs?

  5. If you sell enough percocet on the street you may be able to make a debt in ManUre debt structure. Just a thought.
