Hi Everyone, I never finished my last post when I was waiting to get my scans. This year was ultrasound and chest xray - all clear all clear. The doc gave me choice of continuing 12-month or 16-month checkup and scans at this point (we alternate CT and Ultrasound). I'm opting to keep the 12-month checkin as long as he (my surgeon/urologist/oncologist) and my insurance agree. This five year anniversary feels big, and I am paying attention as my fellow class of 2016 folks report in to the group. Stay as well as possible everyone and know how grateful I am for all of you. Take care ~

    And she's rounding the turn on the inside...Go Jazzgirl

    it's always nice to hear good news.  As those of us who attended a Cancer Support Group called ouselves, "Been there, done that." Mine began in 2006; I was just beginning to feel human 15 yrs ago.  With Stage 4 going into surgery, I already knew it had mets to the liver.  And they found positive nodes; and checked out my complaint about liver/gall bladder and removed said organ and the defective duct that drained bile to the stomach.

    Many tests later these past years, I'll see my Onc. PA/Nurse in a couple of months and probably have a CT scan.  I don't think my Dr. would recognize me, as I haven't seen him for sevral years.

    We're here in Oregon on the SW Coast where weather alternates between breezy and foggy and sometimes downright hot.  I'm "enjoying" working in my yard 4-5 hrs a day and after work sometimes; which has helped me lose some of the quarantine weight.

    Take care, everyone.  

    Air hugs and high 5's,

    Thanks everyone

    And to Donna Lee, you give me such hope. Coincidentally, my wife and I and other relatives are spending a few days at Bandon - usually we go further north. Beautiful views Take care ~
