It has been a long past five months! It might have taken an extra week and a few more test but today, March 14, 2014, I found out that I am in remission and cancer free!
The next steps are to remove my portcath and begin a monitoring phase. I will now meet every two months to get blood work and every four months to do a CT scan. This will be my monitoring phase for the first two years. During the first two years after remission I am at the highest risk for it to come back. There is a 10% chance it could come back. After the two year mark, my monitoring phase will begin to be further and further a part.
This journey is definitely not over but it has reached a great point today. I want to once again thank everyone for all of the support! I definitely could not have done it without you all! I will continue posting here about my next steps, the financial side of things and more related to this.
