    Anyone hear from Rocco. I think that he had scans 2 weeks ago and he did not post results. So worried about him.

      Actually, Rocco is a woman but that's okay.  I've been thinking about her, too.  Maybe she's still on vacation….

      Well, I was just going to post a link to Rocklove's post.  Didn't realize Rocco was a girl either.

      Thank you so much for the concern.  Great timing, was just going to post this evening.  I had scans on 9/04 and then went away on vacation for a week.  Just saw the Onc on Mon.     Drumroll please……..

      Results = all clear, nothing new, nothing grew, in fact not much of anything appearing on the Chest/Abdomend/pelvis CT!  What a difference from a couple years ago!  Only one sub-cm spot on the lung that has remained unchanged for almost a year or so.  MRI of brain is fine, no issues. 

      Also had an appt same day with eye doctor.  The eye issues that I had as a rare ipi side effect have had no impact on the vision….20/20!  Pressure in both eyes is fine.  Doctors are estatic. 

      Have been off Prednisone since early June.  Finally getting over the aches and pains I experienced during the withdrawl.  Energy level is pretty much back.  Only taking Vit D and multi vitamin now.

      I have scans again in late December and don't see the eye doc again for 6 months!

      Life is good.  God is great!
