A step in the right direction

As most of you know I have had colon cancer and been on chemo
for the last 9 months. My blood plateletts had got down to about 40% of
where they should be and the doctor held up my chemo after 10 treatments
waitijng for them to recover. The plateletts did build back up but in the process
I had a bone marrow biopsy done and a few other tests to see why they
were responding so slow.
Today I got the all clear from the doctor. The platelett production was hindered
by the chemo but is ok now and they don't feel there is need for any more chemo
treatments.
Will have a CT scan and a couple of other tests to ensure the cancer is totally gone
and then schedule surgery to re-attach my colon.. My butthole's vacation will soon
be over.
All in all it looks like I am in the clear. Now the side effects of the chemo will start wearing
off, like my blurry vision and the hyper-senitivity to cold and that funky hangover feeling.
Oh yeah I never did lose my hair.
Thanks to all of you folks that encouraged me and said prayers in my behalf.

Good to hear :)
My mother in law has lung cancer and the chemo and radiation she had gave her a beating. Sadly she isnt in the clear (terminal) But she passed her expiry date by 2 years and last scan showed no changes!
Scary stuff that cancer. Hope you dont get a return

I thought I smelled something funny when you played. It was your ostomy bag leaking. :)

Seriously though.... good to hear. One day at a time brother.
