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.

And you know as a signet cell I was a mess and kept asking the Gastro if it had signet cells in it, he kept saying it was not cancer, signet cell is the type of cancer cell. I was a nut....better now and didn't realize how much anxiety I had at the time. 

How are you doing?

Its great to read your post, and hear of your 1st year good news. 

I can imagine how the polyp unsettles you, but the fact that they catch it early and deal with it has to be a great relief. 

As a newbie just starting on the road to recovery, I LOVE to hear from those who are celebrating NED. And thank you for taking the time to come here and post.

As a former-newbie, this site got me through many rough times.  Keep us posted on your journey.

I think signet cell is a pretty aggressive cancer, isn't it?  So it seems like making it a year with nothing new rearing its ugly head is a huge deal.  Good for you, and keep doing it!  Ann Alexandria
