Good news after PET scan!!!

Hi, cancer survivors and those that are beginning the adventure! I don't know if you all remember me but I was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma after my surgery this past May. I just had my first full body PET scan and I am happy to report there has been no reoccurance! So far, so good! I am on 20mg of Megestrol (Megace) once a day as a tumor inhibitor ( it is an anti-neoplastic agent as well as synthetic progestin). They don't know if it will work but they are giving it a try anyway. They don't want me to take estrogen at this time; however, the oncologist prescribed Vagifem for vaginal dryness ( I was miserable). He said that the small amount of estrogen going locally into the vagina would not be a problem for me.

For those of you new to this site, you can't find a better support network!!!

Oh, by the way, my oncologist recommends and he even has it in writing....1-2 glasses of red wine or green tea daily!! What a guy!!!
