I have completed #11 of Folfox this week - last one is March 15 (5-fu will come off March 17) - will have a very Happy St Patty's day - may even have a green beer or two! I haven't had any beer for a year now....
My year, as well as many others, started March 27, 2009...with the abdomin pain - negitive cat scan - other than the abcess in the left lower area...
Surgery was on June 4 - that was the day I was diagnosed....

Yes, it is a LONG journey - and I am SO ready to get back to my new "normal"....just one more time of feeling the chemo crap....These last 3 have really been a kick in the tail...It will take all of my mind, body and spirit to go to this last one -

Congratulations Michelle. I remember talking to you when you first joined and talking about our mutual GREAT surgeon(I see him next week).

It is a long,hard road but well worth the trip. You can now look forward to the future and being cancer free!!

Well done! I completed my 12th in August and it's like it was all a bad dream.... and I wonder why I have to go for a scan late this month!

My 12th was not worse than the previous three so hoping the same for you!

A great milestone to look forward to this month! Hope that the last is the easiest, and "new normal" is quick to follow.

Best wishes,

That is great news,and i'm very happy for you. I will tell you that it does take sometime to get back in the swing of things. If you can take some time for yourself before returning to work. I've been back to work for 6 months and am just getting up to speed.Chemo takes alot out of you. Once again i am very happy for you
Just happy to be Here!!

it is such a relief to be done with the chemo. Take time and space in the next couple of months. I noticed that I was more anxious for a few months and it took me a awhile to get back my strength. It's great that you can get outside more with spring coming. I would just watch clouds and grass grow and feel the breeze on my face.

all the best, Leslie
