I have a bit of whiplash but no complaints.
Current news is that my two pre-surgery tests, a petscan and a resist reading of the inital scan, both seem to show no new disease, no active disease and, certainly, disease stability. I have not talked these through with my doctor and wont be able to anytime in the near future. Instead, I accept that for right now we have incredibly positive news to enjoy. No surgery. No crisis. I just booked my flight to return to treatment like none of the drama ever happened.
