Congrats Lynn! That is good to hear. I can identify with the idea of a new life post-port. I was diagnosed stage 4 in Feb. 06, Surgery in Aug. 06 and finished chemo at the end of Jan 07. Been NED since the surgery. Probably think about removing my port with a clear scan in June... You are motivational!

Congrats again! Live strong, healthy & happy.

Congrats on losing the port!!! Sort of like flying without a net, huh? I 'lost' mine after 2 years and 2 cancers...I can wear sexy necklines again!!! Feels soooo good!

Congrats, also, on the life BEYOND cancer....

Bravo LynnN. I remember being so scared to get that thing out. I figured if I kept it in I would never ever need it. But I let them take it out... only I asked to keep it. I still have it. I come across it in the drawer every once in awhile.... it reminds me that I made it. And it reminds me that I still don't need it. Then I say a little prayer....
