Popping on to say hello and check on everyone. Can't seem to find any posts from people like Danker and Coppercent. Don't remember what Donna's sign on name is. Will have to do a little research. I got my one year NED marker. Clean colonoscopy. Were there always smiley faces on here? I guess I was too busy fighting cancer to notice. I am still having a few problems . . .hot flashes, hip pain, heel pain, toe cramping. I have to sit with a heating pad on my feet often to keep the cramping at bay. My elbow issues were resolved with vitamin D. I'm fully adjusted to my ostomy (most days) and discovered convex wafers which have improved my life greatly in the last month. I do spend a small amount of time with the green eyed monster. Who knew that at 44 I'd be jealous of people because they have anuses. It makes me laugh just thinking about it. It's a hard concept at times but most days I don't give it a second thought. (I feel like I wrote the exact sentiment last post, that's another thing, memory works in circles. lol) I'm considering getting my port out although my doctor recommended leaving it in until my next scan in July. I did the big surgery, I'm ready to be done. I can walk at a full pace again and am ready to try to work out a little. My perspective in life has changed immensely and I don't take anything for granted or sweat the small stuff. Woo hoo I'm alive!
