5 year scan

The results from my 5 year scan. No cancer. None. The doctor said that it was unusual for someone to have a tumor as big as mine (10 cm) and then have no more cancer. But, I am that guy. He said "you did it. You made it." Not gonna lie, I cried right then. No more scans, only an x ray next year. I do have a small kidney stone, but he wasn't too concerned. He said "go celebrate." I think I will.

Fantastic news Crashter.  I'm with you in spirit for your celebration.  I'll be drinking an Asahi.

So happy for you! I am sure the "10 cm" has been bugging you for the past 5 years, and the doc's "you did it. You made it." is just the best gift. Congratulations!

That's great news! But your doctor's comment was kind of strange, unless you were stage 3 or 4?  My cancer was somewhat smaller at 7 cm, but my doctor has always said, or at least implied, that he'd be shocked if it did come back.

I was stage 3 and my tumor was not contained.

Ah, stage 3 makes more sense - although it's still strange wording on the part of your doctor. Now go celebrate if you haven't already!

Agreed...mine was 12 x7 and my doc told me I will live to see my grandchildren...no expectation of return.

What wonderful news!  Definitely go celebrate! 🎉🪅🎊  

God is good!

I'm celebrating today too. Found liver lesion on my 1 year scan (after my baseline scan post surgery), had a MRI yesterday and received results today! "No suspicious liver lesions identified!" 🎉

I still have my checkups, even at 15 years.  It's great to hear about others.

It's a really great space to be in, that's for sure. I am certain I would have a good cry if I ever reached this position.

BUT ... if I was in this position 5 years after a large tumor I would be fighting hard for an annual chest, abdomin, pelvis CT scan for the next 5 years then reconsider where to go after that.

As we get older nearly all of us develop little unexplained aches and pains, maybe in our bones, maybe in our abdomen, maybe in our chest. I don't think I could live with these aches and pains and no appropriate cancer surveillance strategy for the years ahead. But that's just me.  

Hopefully you will never need any more surveillance after this, that would be the best possible outcome. Best wishes.
