Had my 3 month post treatment scan yesterday and got clean relults...sort of in shock...for those of you staring the journey remember there is a light at the end of the tunnel.....I am still struggling with some radiation related issues and major weight loss, but trying to get back to work 1/2 days...The beast can be beat...

Love that acronym!!  You look good on the arm of Mr. NED Laughing.  It takes a while to get weight back (I'm still working on it at 7 months out)....and it took me till January to get some energy.....it's just slow going, but....it IS going....you'll get there.

Congrats on your scan.....what a relief, huh?

NED is the guy we all want to meet and know....now you do! Congrats and keep in mind this is a slow, very slow healing process. I've still got about 7 or 8 pounds to gain. Most people might not think much of that amount but I was thin to begin with and I just didn't have the weight to spare. Anyway I am just about 9 months out from treatment and still healing so be patient my friend. Enjoy your new friend NED, he's a great guy!

Its the thing, short of someone you love saying I love, oh who am I kidding, its not short of anything it awesome everytime, even when u hear someones else NED. Great work, now start mentally healing, the weight will come back as you continue to get used to the new you. Have the best night sleep in a long time! Praise God!
