That's incredible. So Awesome!!!

For proper context, can you please recap what cancer you had and your general story so far?
january 2022 diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer , march 1 had thyroidectomy and radical neck dissection surgery because cancer had spread to lymph nodes, vocal cord nerve , trachea and esophagus (6 hr surgery 6 days in hospital) followed with radioactive Iodine ablation . follow up scan showed they weren't able to get all of the cancer. April 1 referred to radiation oncology for external beam radiation, after discussing the side effects and damage ebrt would cause I decided to put off Ebrt as long as possible much to the dismay of my Doctors. April 14th started the Joe Tippens protocol after hearing about it from a friend. had several surgeries for distant metastasis and here I am

Good to hear, but for Gods sake, keep up with your check ups!!!!!! My father went into remission and failed to keep up with the checks ups and now hes paying for it
I intend to stay on top of it. When I first refused External beam radiation I was told less than a year to survive with out it.

after testing last week and meeting with my oncologist and endocrinologist I am now officially "NED" (no evidence of active disease) I have a few procedures up coming to repair damage, but I'm now in the monitoring phase with labs and scans every 4 months.
I have to remain NED for 5 years to be considered cancer free.
Praise God and Thank you to everyone who kept me in your thoughts and prayers and pray I stay NED if you don't mind. Again
Thank You everyone and thank you Lord
great news GOD watching out for you! stay strong.
