      I just wanted to let you know those of you who doubt Interferron there is hope.  I had my first scan since my LND and interferron injections and it was negative.  I was told I took well to the interferron and my bloodwork and weight was back to normal…keep in mind I did not complete the year program I only did the high dose and three weeks of the low self injections  Thought I would share the good news with you all  .Good luck to each of you  NED for the first time since diagnosis.

                        Thank you for sharing, congrats to you and your son.  Yes we can enjoy the holidays I was glad I didn't have to make any more decisions or more surgery.  2011 has to be better than 2010.
