I have not posted for awhile but am still reading the posts every other week. I completed treatment almost a year and half ago and just had my PET scan and it was all clear!! I wanted to share this good news for all to read because I am just so happy and feel grateful. Also, I want to give hope to those that are just starting the treatment. I feel good, am thankful for each and every day and have adjusted my life to have less stress, spend more time with my child and family and focus on what is truly important. It is perfect? No. But it is what makes me happy and at the end of the day, that is what matters most, right? I have no residual side effect other than a deminished sex drive and that is something I need to work on. Any support or advice appreciated. I want to let those just starting out know that you can beat this and can come out on the other side not only a better person but without many side effects... a new normal... yes, absolutely. How that looks is different for all of us. But the constant... life is precious.
