Good News -- I think

Thursday the oncologist made the decision that two chemo treatments were enough. No more chemo!

I had been treated with a high dosage from the beginning because of the type of cancer and I did not do well with it. Because of that, and because of how well my radiation treatments are going and I have only had to reschedule two sessions, the oncologist and the radiologist decided any benefit from the chemo for the cancer would be offset by the damage from the chemo overall.

They do feel confident we will get rid of this cancer. The decision to do both chemo and radiation was predicated on the stage 3 size of the tumor; however, it was just over the size so that also played into the decision to stop at two treatments.

So, Good News! --- I think.
