Update

Water Lilies a la Monet by Joachim G. Pinkawa

I found out yesterday the recurrent cancer has not metastasized, (spread), to my bones and that my back fracture will heal on its own given time. I went today to have a “simulation” session to prepare for stereotactic radiation to my lung tumor. I will not lie, it is scary, but the technicians, physicist, and physicians were all nice.

I start treatments on June 19th and will have five to eight treatments dependent upon how the tumor responds to the targeted radiation. I asked my oncologist what the chances of recurrence of cancer after this was and he answered 50/50 chance of recurrence. So, once I finish with radiation, I will have a CT scan in one month. The next one will be in October.

My husband and I have decided to go on a few trips we have delayed for the last two years. Time to thank God for this time and have some enjoyment between scans. All in all, the news could have been so much worse so we are grateful for this reprieve.

Thank you all for your concern, support, positive vibes and prayers. I cannot tell you how much they are appreciated. Also, has anyone else here been through stereotactic radiation? Thanks my friends!

  1. That’s such wonderful news that it has not metastisized (I don’t know how to spell that word). That makes me really happy to read.

    Wishing you the best through your radiation when it starts. I hope that you and your husband can get away, even for just a night or two, before your radiation starts. Once it starts you’re going to be one tired woman.

    Sending love and hugs and positive vibes your direction ❤

  2. I”m so glad the cancer hasn’t spread. I really hope the cancer will not return after this radiation. The treatment sounds scary, but I know it’s necessary. I”m so glad you will be enjoying some time away with your husband and with friends inbetween scans.
