I know there are many on this board who are actively dealing with cancer but are not "NED". Some have been doing this for awhile + I would love to hear how you (long + short-term) are doing it. Many talk about this cancer as sometimes "chronic" + that may be how I survive this disease, which I am determined to do. Please share your secrets..I have been at this nearly 2 years (diagnosed the end of March 2009). I attribute my success so far mostly to an excellent medical team. I also credit this forum for keeping me as sane as I am. Friends + family play a huge role. I do try to eat fairly healthy (have degree in nutrition), juice when I can, make green tea lattes + thanks to Graci I have just tried my first buggalo meat. I have reduced, not eliminated red meats, + am more interested in how chickens are treated. I want to increase my exercise. I do take vitamin D daily. I need to talk about some other treatments to see if it's ok to take. We have a local market that sells local foods in the summer. People who are NED have a maintenace issue rather than hrlpint to treat.
