Mission Remission

I had my CT scan on Monday, and today I went in to go over the results of my scan with my oncologist. His first words were, “Your scan is perfect.” Both my scan and bloodwork are as good as can be, and I am officially in remission. I have a follow-up colonoscopy next week to make sure that what’s left of my colon is good. My oncologist said the scan showed that my colon looks like it’s still a little swollen, but that’s not concerning because it’s still healing. I will know for sure next week if everything is good.

I will have a CT scan every three months for a year, and then every six months after that until I reach five years. If everything goes well over the next five years I will then be able to say I am cancer-free. My oncologist says that from the pattern of how well my body responded to surgery and treatments that he suspects I will have good news from here on out. It’s not a guarantee, but my future looks bright.
