How do you count remission?

Hope every one is doing well this evening. I'm wondering if anyone knows when you start counting the time you start remission? I was in remission after my second cycle of RCHOP in December 2009. However I believe doctors count from when you finish treatment, which for me would be February of this year. So at what month would I be one year disease free? Does anyone know? And yes, I know I have many months to go before we are there.

Does the count start after chemo or after radiation?

I think it's from the first clean scan, whenever that may be. BUT I believe we are survivors from DAY ONE of diagnosis.

Just my opinion.
