Good News on the Check-Up Front

Hello Everyone,
I nearly had to tie my hands down so I wouldn't get on here and whine last night about how scared I was of today's appointment. I got great news, nothing at the tumor site and cea below 1 (well, it was .5 when I had cancer?!). The doc said that the check-ups are less intense as time passes because most recurrences happen in the early years if they are going to. There was no chest x-ray either which bothered me a little (I like the reassurance), but I am happy not to have the excess radiation too. I will have 3 years NED in February. Thank you for your unflagging support, I really need you all, your friendship is important to me. Happy Holidays to all of us.
Love and Kindest Feelings,

Taunya...what great news. I am almost 6 years NED for rectal cancer. I know the relief of the good news and the apprehension of the appointments. You should rest easier...I was told that two years NED is a great prognostic fator and that three is really wonderful. You can exhale now and enjoy the Holiday season. I am so happy for you.

Congratulations on the fantastic news. I understand most recurrences happen in the first 2 years. So three (in Feb) is great. Happy holidays.

Fab news- oncologists are incresingly sayong three years free is one of the main aims (used to be ten years reduced to five a while back). So your confidence at having beaten this monster must be growing whichI am sure is a fabulous feeling.Well done and keep up the good fight,
