End of Treatment

Posted by

Hi everyone. My fiancé was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma in November 2018 in his pelvis, spine and lungs. He’s had 14 rounds of chemotherapy, and almost finished 42 sessions of radiotherapy. On the last scan, it showed no mets in his lungs, spine was stable and the pelvic tumour had shrunk significantly. The doctors have said he will just be scanned every 3 months now to keep an eye on him.

Has anyone else experience this? Where the treatment plan has finished but the cancer is still present, and the doctors have no further plan? 

It’s been a year of hell for both of us, and we want more than anything to get back to normal but we can’t help but feel like we’re just waiting for it to start growing again at any moment. 

Thank you.

I'm sorry to hear of your fiance's diagnosis and that he is now being scanned every 3 months to keep an eye on him, I think that you would receive more responses if you repost your question in the Bone cancer group which I see you have already joined.

I hope that by reposting you will get some of the answers you need.
