Hi everyone,
As a stage III semicolon, I was very relieved to hear good news at my 18 month check up...scans were all clear, and bloodwork looks good. I understand from my onc that the chance of recurrance is highest in the first two years, than begins to drop. I can't believe how nervous I felt waiting for these results.
I have found this board to be a real lifeline, particularly after surgery and during chemo; thank you all for your support.
Wishing us all good days ahead, Judy

Congrats!

What a relief for you. Didn't know about the recurrence rate - higher, then lowering - thanks for the info.
Hope you are celebrating!

Cheers,
Maura

Great news and now you can really enjoy your slow evolving Northeast spring. That should help calm down those wired nerves. They need a break now.

Thanks for sharing!!!!
