This is kind of off topic a little but, I just wanted to wish everyone a happy Halloween. I figure we have had more fear and pain in our lives than most people will ever face. Last year at this time I was finishing tx. I was so sick I missed Halloween, no pumpkins. Tomorrow I go in for a CT to see if the lump in my groin area is the cancer back, I had 2 lymph nodes involved. Well I ain't afraid of no ghost, or a CT, so I will get up in the morning and face yet another fear, kick it in the behind and go forward form there. Happy Halloween from the pumpkin Queen.

Good luck tomorrow - I hope everything turns out ok.

I finished treatment on Halloween too, in 2008. I wasn't able to do the door thing, but I left a basket of candy outside for all the little ghosts and goblins. My wedding anniversary is Oct 30 (Today!), we bought our condo in October, and I finished cancer treatments in October - October is a happy month for us.

I hope it will be for you too - best of luck tomorrow!

Congratulations on reaching the 1-year post-treatment mark and I wish you all the best with your CT scan tomorrow. I hope there are no concerns about recurrence based upon the CT results. Please let us know what you find out.

Happy Halloween to you as well!! I agree...we need alittle something to help take our minds off what we are going (or have gone) thru.
I'll keep you in my prayers that the cancer stays away....& it won't be a 'scary' day (so to speak!).

I hope all comes out well. Lymph nodes in the groin act up for other reasons besides cancer. When I was going through all my pre-treatment tests my lymph nodes went balistic. Swollen, painful. Docs were convinced it had spread there. But tests showed it had not. I think my lymph nodes were reacting to all the foriegn "invasions" - probes, scopes and whatever else they did.

Waiting to hear your news.

Happy Halloween right back to you. Let us know how your CT goes. My guess is that all is well.

No word from my Dr. yet. I think the waiting is the worst. Two lymph nodes in my groin had cancer and were seriously radiated. I think my Doc is considering taking them out as they keep getting blocked up and infected. Thinking positive thoughts and practicing patience.
