pleasantly prescribed


So, yesterday I had my 6 month CAT scan. I'm always a little nervous, because I'm just not sure how long my "free ride" will last (meaning no treatment). Well, today was my oncology appointment to talk about the results from the scan. My doctor came in and asked how I was feeling. I told her I feel really good, with occasional pains and fatigue. She said my scan looked great! She also said that my labs looked good as well. My LDH levels (that would show the cancer progressing) were in a very normal range, and that my lymph nodes have gone down a lot since my last scan in September. She said she wanted to prescribe..Acai Berry & prayer, because that seems to be working really well for me! It was so good to hear that if I have to have any cancer at all, the cancer I have is at least behaving well and not causing me any problems. As my doctor said...I am not in remission, but me and my cancer are co-existing just fine. She also said I look like I'm 18 years old. She's now my best friend! :)
