Scans all clear!

My chest-only CT-scan was clear . . . as expected. But the best part is that because I'm just about to hit my 3-year NED mark, the doctor says that my scan schedule can shift to every 6 months. Yeah!

My doctor also tells me that 3 years NED is really a big milestone for high-grade sarcoma patients, as 90% of all recurrence would have revealed itself by now. Such recurrence (should it happen) would very likely show up in the chest, abdomen, or pelvis, and sometimes (but rarely) in the origin (my left thigh).

Talk to you in another 6 months!
