Just wanted to let you all know that my colonoscopy went perfectly on Friday. Nothing...no new polyps, no sign of recurrence. Dr. said that he would see me again in 3 years. I just want to thank all of you for your kind words of encouragement. It means so much during trying days. I especially feel better hearing how difficult follow-ups are for all of us. It makes me feel like less of a chicken-$%#@! Now I just have to figure out the rest of my life...but it's a little easier with that test behind me (ha ha!). Well, 7 years and 2 months after diagnosis I am still disease free and considered cured. For anybody new here, keep the faith. It does happen! Thanks again survivors. We are a special breed!

That is GREAT news and gives such hope to other survivors and caregivers. It is wonderful that you still post after so many years being NED....but we need you! So do not stop posting! I hope this latest news will help you sort out the other aspects of your life. My husband is doing well too....nearly three years after diagnosis but his job as a consultant attorney is very stressful, especially as he is a worrier. Sometimes, I just want to hide him away from it all and protect him for any stress, but I realize that is not possible. Ah, life is tough!

Hopefully you have a personal web page; this kind of news needs to be permanently shared. It means a lot to people who are waiting, waiting for this or that test, etc. We sometimes put our lives on hold while waiting, and forget to live each day to the fullest extent possible. Thanks for sharing your positive information. Bud
