I shouldn't get ahead of myself in celebrating, but I am already excited. Tomorrow at 11 am, I'll have my final internal radiation treatment, and after that will have officially COMPLETED my initial treatment protocol!!! What a long year since that fateful Pap test last July!! Then I'll have 6 glorious weeks of NO doctor visits and NO treatments of any kind! I have to wait 6 weeks after radiation to get a reliable CA-125 and CT-scan, and I plan to think of myself as cancer-free the entire 6 weeks, CURED. I plan to think of myself as CURED until some diagnostic proves me wrong!

:D

Just had to share! I hope I can sleep tonight!

I finished up with everything at the end of March. What a relief it was! I remember thinking when it all started that my potential finish date seemed so far away. What a long road! Congrats to you - a job well done! :o)
