I’m 57 and it will be 14 Years in October that I was first diagnosed. How about you?

I get my scan results tomorrow. Having some major anxiety about this. I pray there isn’t anything new. I’m quite content with stable. Our house has had so much bad news lately we reall need something positive

Dianarose, I look forward to meeting you, too. I have been following your posts. I am doing very well, thank you. Some of it is denial, of course, but I am still living and enjoying life. My DH and I are going to spend 4 days in the Bahamas next week. I plan to spend most of my time at the beach or pool, just relaxing. Btw, my son and his wife just moved to Dover. I love the downtown area.

Just got my scan results. The belly mets have improved a lot. Bone mets are confusing. I have seven and they cannot tell if they are active, healing or skeletal. I have a bone scan next week.
