YUP .... doc came in and said that the nodules are stable. I jumped up and hugged him! I said "I am not coming back. I am done!" He smiled and says "I hope you understand that you need to continue to be followed for 5-10 years and that you will consider being checked at least every year." WOW! I've been going every 3 months for a year now and to hear once a year ... DEAL!

Ladies ... I cannot tell you how friggin happy I am. I kept telling myself (for the past 3 months anyway) there is no way there is more cancer in me. I won't allow it! I've been chasing that dark cloud away forever. Now I can move forward and possibly never look back.

Thanks for all the well wishes and the prayers. FAITH! You gotta have faith.

xoxo
Mary

I can't tell you how happy I am for you! It seems that those pesky lung nodules were worrisome to the docs, but it sounds like maybe they're just "body junk". Please do follow up, tho. Since we grew cancer once, I figure it's just good insurance to make sure we don't do it again (I, too, believe my cancer from 2 years ago is gone)and it's ok with me to have these routine follow ups just like I used to have routine mammos and paps before all this crazy stuff started. It makes me happy that your doc wants to make sure you're ok, but doesn't think it's necessary to look under every rock every 3 months. I just "graduated" to every 6 months, but feel no urgency if I'm overdue. You know we're never in the clear with breast cancer, even after 5-10 years. They don't know why sometimes the cells just lay dormant for a long time and then wake up, but sometimes they do. And - we can always develop another cancer as whatever conditions allowed this to develop in the first place still exists.

Ok, I'll get off my soap box about following up, even if once a year. Now, let's party!

But, I am concerned that you will only be seeing the doctor once a year if there are nodules in your lungs. Obviously the doctor knows best so I will just join you in doing the Happy Dance!!!

HUGS!!!

Mary,

I am happy, thrilled and if I could dance and move the way I once could, I would join you in a happy dance too.

Mary see them more than once a year, how about 6 months? I join Jamie in her concerns.

For NOW!

Dance Mary, Dance! You earned the right to enjoy, twirl and dance.

A good holiday season for you and yours,

Doris
