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.

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 : )

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%!

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.
