It makes me very happy to post that tomorrow, 1/31/13, I will be 1 year NED.
But......this did not come without a bump. Had 1 year colonoscopy on Monday and a polyp was found. Yikes, tick, tick, tick...wait and wait...... Dr called and it was not cancer, just a polyp, but based on my history, wants to check me with a sigmoidoscopy in 3-6 months. Also suggested genetic testing since this is another issue. DId not need genetic testing last year. He said it would be good info to have. Since I am also signet cell - it is a good move. Knowledge is power. Maybe I will just be prone to polyps.
I thought I would prep, have the colonoscopy, my colon would be a work of art and all would be wonderful.
Besides the little bump in the road........I feel VERY blessed and fortunate.
Just another day on the cancer roller coaster ride.
