Colonoscopy clear

I had my first colonoscopy since dx in Jan. 2009 today and the gastro doc said my surgeon did such a great job that he had a hard time finding where it was resected. He found a tiny area where he could tell it had been stitched together.

No polyps and no lesions. This gastro, a wonderful Christian doctor in our town who does free colonoscopies for those without insurance, wants me to have a colonoscopy once a year for at least 3 years because he once had a guy have a clean scope one year and came in with sypmtoms 3 years later and was Stage IV. He said he'd rather be overly protective and save a life.

Feeling great and I actually forget that I even had cancer for days at a time! It's like it was a bad dream. I still have neuropathy in my fingers and feet but both are getting better and have become my 'new norm'.

So glad to hear that your colonoscopy came back clean! Such a tense moment, waiting for it to be over! I just had my 2nd one and yippee - it was clean also.

Awesome news. Been thinking and praying for you so that is just wonderful news. Think your doctor is right about once a year. I have to go back in six months to see surgeon, but that is just for follow up. He is a very concerned doctor too and keeps close tabs on me. Still have neuropathy in feet but taking something for it. Still bothers me but yes this is my "new norm" also. Your news made me smile.
