I just got in from having my blood tests and a 2 minute visit with my sweet onc. He said 'You're doing SO well that we'll see you in four months and then at 8 months with a scan the week before the 8 month visit.' I'm FREE until mid December!

My surgeon is overloaded but they squeezed me in for my port removal on Wednesday, Sept. 2nd, first visit of the morning.

I can eat oysters, work in the dirt, clean out my cat's litter box.... Yeah!

What a lovely thing to hear :)

I remember when I got my 1st one out - a week before Christmas in 2004 and it was the best thing ever to reach over on that side of my chest and not feel a "bump."

Ports always remind me the stuff is real and there is an invader in your body - getting it out feels go good. I am happy for you.

Can't wait till I hear that the 2nd one can go too...it's been in much longer this time due to my situation.

Best of luck and enjoy your cancer free life - you did it!
