On April 17, 2014 my treating oncology team reported the following:
The tumor in my chest, which measured 7.5 centimeters in length prior to chemotherapy, now measures nine millimeters. The remaining mass is likely nothing more than dead scar tissue that will be reabsorbed by my body. The chemotherapy worked and I don’t need any more treatment. I will see the oncology team and receive routine scans for the next five years. These scans will be used to catch, as early as possible, any recurrence of the initial cancer or occurrence of a secondary cancer.
