As I was driving home from my family doctor's office today, I realized that it's the 6-months anniversary of my diagnosis. My checkup today was good, just a general one for a look see after my recent hospitalization. Just wonder when the unreality of it all will dissipate. I still sit back sometimes and think, "I'm now a cancer patient." Weird! Oh, well. At least I'm still here to be thinking that!!!

Congratulations on 6 months. In Nov. I will be 5 years out and still I go to the Onc. and feel like I don't belong. Mostly because my treatment was different from what other people are going through. I was stage 1, so I didn't have to have chemo/rad therapy. I just donated a little bit of my colon. I will say this, all of the check-ups and tests for me have just become a normal part of my life. I wish you a lifetime of good check-ups!
