I had the appointment with the oncologist for the 6 month post radiation (3 post chemo) follow-up this morning, and everything was normal. During the exam the oncologist reviewed the H&N MRI performed 1 week before (I didn’t know the results until this morning) and scoped the areas involved.

I was really worried, not that I had any particular reasons (other than having cancer before ;-)), but it was hard not to think of “what if…”

It looks like all the trouble (having the treatment, with all the present and future side effects) was worth it.

Wonderful news!!  Don't we love those words, huh?  An added dimension to the definition of the word relief.....Damn rights it's hard not to think of "what if"....we've already heard those words once....

Congrats on the great news.

I often say it is easy to lose sight of the objective during tx when you are just trying to make it thru the day and then when you hear the words NED it all becomes worthwhile.

Thank you everyone for your kind words.

For those that are just beginning, or in the middle of the battle, should now there is life (and a pretty damn good one) after that.
