If I said I was not totally relieved I would be lying!!!!!!
My ultrasounds and blood tests have come back very positively---that is to say--nothing--not a thing shows up on them!!!!!!!!!
I am so happy I could jump right across tha screen and give all yu guys a bear hug!!!!!!!
I am pleased to say that I have a doctor that is listening to me now."She" is now scheduling ultrasounds on a regular basis and bloods every 3 months.She is very happy with the surgeons/oncologists reports and is encouraged that the surgery/chemo has stopped the beast in its tracks.
She agrees with me that further colonoscopies should be done regularly--the first at 6 months and then 12 monthly rather than the previous doctors advice of every 2 years.
So guys--what can I say???Of course the beast will still be on my mind but I hope that these results may be of some encouragement to others here.
We both thank you all from the very bottom of our hearts----I know that I have said it before--but who cares--we REALLY mean it!!!!
luv n huggs to all--kanga n Jen

BTW--kanga ain't leavin his friends--am still comin here--still got lotsa luv to give!

    Kanga and Jen,

    This is the best news and I am sooooooo happy for you both. I know what a relief it is. I too am staying on this site with this wonderful group, even though I finished treatment and tests are coming back good. If we can offer any answers, encouragment and/or prayers to anyone going through this diagnosis and treatment we'll be here for sure.

    Stay in touch and enjoy your "new" life!


  • Way to go Kanga! Let me do the happy dance for you and yes, while I know that Bert too is NED, the demon is never far from our minds. But at least he is no longer in the forefront!!!

    Go celebrate...do I hear corks popping????? Bert and I are so happy for you...and we ain't leaving either. Life can be so good!

    Hi Kanga,

    Congratiolations from accross the Pacific Ocean!. And I bet Jen has a lot to do with it too!. Keep maintaining the number one defense (positive attitude) of any type of challenge.

    Aussie!, Aussie!, Hoy!, Hoy!, Hoy!.

    YOU GO DUDE!!!!! I thought about you all day yesterday knowing you would soon be getting your results. What wonderful news to a very deserving couple (you and Jen, the ultimate caregiver). You have to stay with us, so you can teach us what it is like in survivalship!!!! You, Stacey, Spongebog, Emily, and so many of the other true survivors give so much to us newbies with your information, but mostly from your inspiration. I for one learn from your every posting.

    Please spend some time savoring this moment and go for a long, fun ride on them cycles soon.

    Hugs from the East Coast of the US to your family down under!!!! Congrats again and I will be toasting your success for the next few weeks!!
