Well I had my 6 month scan and checkup, my scan was clear. Saw my surgeon and onc dr yesterday. My onc and I had a discussion about percentages of recurrence and this is what he explained to me. They can be high but most recurrences making the percentages high occur during the 1st year and then some during the second year, after you pass the 2 yr mark, that is a really good sign and milestone. It is not impossible that you may have a recurrence later as I have seen them on this board, but your chances go down, hopefully. Also, I go back for scans in June and December and then start on yearly!!! scans and checkups. Well I was smiling and still am with all this. Just wanted to give some good news especially to our class of 2009, who all kind of hold our breaths when we get our scans and checkups. We all do no matter when we were dx'd. I always feel guilty posting good news because this last year has seen so much sadness here, all of us remember those we have lost and hold in our hearts. April is coming time to get those posters out from Ecan reminding people that heartburn can cause cancer. My internist has ours in the bathroom where people have time to read it, LOL. take care, thoughts and prayers for all here.
