Hi all. I have been reading posts for a few months but finally decided to actually join the discussions. I was diagnosed with stage 3b back a few months ago. I had chemotherapy-5 FU and Mitomycin and 30 IMRT radiation treatments. I had my first PET scan a couple of months ago and everything was all clear! I was/am so happy about the scan but can't help but still worry about the cancer coming back, especially since it was already stage 3b. Please tell me that time will help with my anxiety and worry. Are there others here that were at a stage 3 when they were diagnosed? If so, how many years have you been cancer free? Are there any here who have had a recurrance of the cancer after having a clear scan?
