Colonoscopy this month. I was fine until last night. Woke up in a sweat several times and had the weirdest dreams.  This year will mark two years NED. Just have to get through a colonoscopy this month and a scan in July. I'm beginning my chanting and deep breathing. It relieves some of the anxiety. NED NED NED  No use in worrying, that just wastes my days on earth.

    I know

    its hard but try to relax! If there is anything it will be caught so early it wont be a big deal, they'll just remove it then and have you come back. And I bet there won't be anything! Easy Peasy, promise : )

    It's common for this and I've always had it.  Wishing you the best NED scan and you've been doing good so far so this should be a good scan as well.  It's hard not to panic so just take a deep breath once in awhile.  You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    I did the drastic surgery so

    I did the drastic surgery so this round if it comes back I'm stage IV and a lifer and my doctor said my odds drop to 7%-33% survival so I need it not to come back. They've taken out the parts where it could stem from. Fingers crossed. I really want to beat this 100%!
