Hi all,

I just had my two-and-a-half year follow-up visit with the oncologist and so far, so good.

As a reminder, and also for the new folks, diagnosed 12/04 with stage 2a colon cancer. Had laprascopic right hemicolectomy, no chemo. Then regular follow-up visits with the oncologist first every 4 months, then at the 2 year point, went to 6 monthly visits. Plan is to have a repeat colonoscopy in December. Was to have a CT in the fall but just had one a few months ago for a kidney stone and it was clear from a cancer perspective.

Feeling very releaved and fortunate.

Best to all.
