  • one more thing about remission.....

    today Brian is in the city getting his staples out and getting his 1st marker test since oct 9th .. it was soo long ago, but i guess the dr's are confident. do you think i should be worried about this? and i also mentioned in the previous postings.... the word remission, and what was considered.

    Brian hasnt had chemo since mid july and his markers normalized. does that put him in a lower recurrance rate? because its been almost 4 months? and isnt there a time frame that they gave where if the cancer was going to grow again, it would grow in that period of time? sorry if i confused you all i dont know how to ask the question properly... does anyone know this answer?


    Ps. Thursday he meets with Dr. Sheinfeld yikes!!!!
