We got talking at work today about recurrence and how they could definetly happen. I was just wondering. For those that have had one, how long after you were NED did you have your first one?

This beast is nasty and can recur, as we all know. It may be hard for to to imagine at this stage of NED that there were days during the those two years that I didn't even think of cancer except for the fact that I had a port.

1rst recurrence 90 days, now 2yr NED Did an assay on the recurrence which reflected the 1rst chemo combo was a waste of time.
