I had my 2nd checkup this week at MD Anderson and Im happy to announce I continue to be cancer free. I was very nervous and filled with anxiety, but after I got the good news I just burst out into tears of joy and relief. I just wanted to continue with all this good news spreading around here...woooot.

Sephie you and I have the same doctors, I have both Dr. Skibber and Dr. Das and Dr. Eng is my chemo doctor. Thus far I have gotten the answers I needed and they all are very straight forward, but I havent had any unusual issues from my treatment. I did have an area that swelled after treatment near the anus, but it seems to have calmed down considerably and Im feeling great. I feel so lucky to be able to go there and have such excellent doctors care for me, I was telling Dr. Das's nurse how I thank God I found out about MD Anderson. If it hadnt been for this site I would never have known, so thank you all for sharing and providing answers and solutions.

thx for info. i am glad you like your doctors. makes me feel better about them. i am still having problems so i get really fearful of what the bump and pain are.is. das really hurt me on left side last week with the DRE. used no lubricant. (remember i am 19 months post) i can take lots of pain. so that scared me. and made me mad but i have not said anything. skibber did not hurt me with procto. neither did Ct scan enema (really tore my anus up last year). soooooo i am still healing . hugs sephie

Being nervous is normal. I am 2 years 3 months out from my final treatment. I have pet scans and follow up vists with the doctors and get very nervous each time.
