OK — So What Does It Mean?

CT scan yesterday. Results today.

Waiting today was tough. There are only two results: Oh shit and OK for now.

Pancreatic cancer is considered incurable. It’s never really gone.

Incredible news! Unfortunately it changes nothing.

I’m still undergoing chemo in another 3-4 weeks. There will be more scans once or twice a year. And every time I will worry as I did today.

This is the surprising part of cancer. You can cure it, but you never get rid of it.

  8. Hi Geoff, so glad you’re winning with this health issue. My wife, Laurie, is a survivor of stage4 Melanoma. She had a 10% chance and now 6 years later, looking great. We take no chances so she scans every 6 to 8 months. She worries every scan so I know your concerns quite well. I’m sending lots of good wishes to you, my dear friend of more than 45 years. Thanks for keeping us informed on your situation. Love to you always.
