View Full Version : Bro given all clear

08-06-2006, 15:42
4 Months ago my 23 year old bro was diagnosed with testicular cancer, the day after diagnosis he was operated on and the testical and tumour were removed, the day after that he had a scan to see if it had spread, unfortunately it had, to the lymphanodes (sp) in his stomach. The next thing was 3 grueling months of chemo, with 3 chemo cycles, in for 4 days one week, then the next two weeks was in for half an hour for an injection of chemo. (repeated 3 times)
2 weeks ago he finished the chemo, last week he had a scan to see if the treatment was successful.
Now for the great news, He went for the results this afternoon, just rung me and he's been given the all clear :D :D :D :D Got to go for a routine scan in 1 month, then 3 months just to make sure it's fully gone.
So f**king happy and releived it's over for him :D :D :D :D
