I am 12 1/2 years out from my original diagnosis at the age of 30. I have had 10 abdominal surguries, 3 different courses of chemo, 2 different courses of radiation therapy and 5 recurrences. I am 7 weeks out from my last surgery and doing well. When I was originally diagnosed, my expected survival was less than 5 yrs. There weren't any discussion booards like this, I think this is great to have other people around that can empathize. Hope to hear from some of you...lets get this discussion rolling!
