I can still remember your fist post and how frightened you were, this is awesome news!

To answer your question, yes your mets can continue to shrink on Aromasin! So lets hope that is just dead tissue on the scan and Aromasin keeps you dancing with NED!

Congratulations!! Sometimes "shrinkage" is a good thing, right? (Seinfeld episode reference for those who think I'm nuts!!). Just finished first cycle of Xeloda and hoping for shrinkage, too.

NED is waiting for us!!

Wonderful news! I'll just bet that 10% that seems to maybe still be detectable is just scar tissue. You are on your way to boogie-down with NED! YAY!
I just adore an oncologist who will call a patient while away on holiday. He gets a bottle of Scotch this Christmas!

Hi Tracy,

There can be fluctuations like this in tumour markers, so try not to worry - easier said than done, I know.

Thinking of you!
