Greetings again! On October 2 and 3, 2017, I made my latest visit to M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. It had been two years since my last visit.

Cutting to the chase--no evidence of disease. N.E.D. All tumor markers well within normal ranges, nothing unusual on the scans.

Diagnosed in 2009, MOAS in January 2010. So it has been just about 8 years of cancer-free living.  Had a mini-reunion with a couple of appendix cancer friends, which was wonderful. Good people.

Anyhow, my next visit will be in two years.

If you happen to find this site, I think the basic advice points from my old posts (links along the right side of this page) still hold true: Get multiple opinions. Do not go to a doctor who is NOT an appendix cancer specialist, even if you have have to travel. You get one chance to do this right. Treatments may change a bit, but that 8 year old advice is still valid.

If you send me a message, put your email in the message so I can respond.

Good luck. Onwards!
