Gall Bladder Cancer Update From Upfront
I have a stunning story to report. I have went through all the chemo and then had a Pet/ct scan. My cancer is gone. The chemo drugs I had were Gems-ar and Cisblatin. They were giving one after the other once a week for three weeks then week off. Then start again for 12 weeks total. I am now going to have radiation in areas where it was. Of course gall bladder was removed early on. My cancer was in the lymph nods and had spread to one spot out of the gall bladder area . I am now clean, no trace of cancer. This was not what I was told to expect. This has proven to be bad cancer and hard to treat. I don't know what to say except I was open about this and had wonderful support. I always believed I would beat it and did my best to never give in. Early on I found an angle on line that had the same stuff and was now clean. She was a great supporter and friend now. She was a retired Rn and could share much with a real understanding. She held me by the hand all the way. We will meet this Summer. If you can find someone like this it is a god send. I hope you all make it and just wanted to let you know to never give up. :-)
