Update - I heard those lovely words, "you have a clean colon".  OMG!!  The Dr did take some cells from the area where I had a pre-c polyp removed last year.  But said all looked really really good and he said I would not have to see him for 3 years.  I may not wait 3, but it was great to hear.  As a 3b signet cell - this is tremendous.

My birthday is 1/25 and I feel for the first time in 3 years I can truely celebrate.  I feel so blessed and fortunate.

I send my love and prayers to all.  Please IM me if I can provide any info or encouragement.

*********************************************************************

 

Fingers crossed everyone.  I will update the post when I know.  Last year I had 1 small pre-c polyp removed so who knows.

    Thanks Guys

    With my CEA at 0.7 I feel pretty good about it but I am a realist and did have that pre-c polyp last year. 

    I feel alot more prepared than last year.  Kinda like when you have a second cesarean you are better prepared then the first (especially if it was a surprise!).

    Will keep you all posted.

    Yahoo!

    That's great news!  But I agree about not waiting 3 years...that seems a long time to go between check-ups, esp when you are a stage 3.  

    I wonder what the national recommendation is?

    Anyway, congratulations on the excellent results!

    Hugs~AA

    Agree with AA ... no, on the waiting three years. Enjoy blowing out those candles.

    Peace. ~ Cynthia

    Bring him on

    Here he is, just for you, the Happy Dance Man image.

    Great news indeed. 

    I think three years sounds great, as long as you CEA stays within range. 

    Be sure to come in on your birthday, we're going to PAR-TAY.

    I can just feel your joy! Congratulations! I agree with AA that 3 years is too long. Colonoscopy is a life-saver.
