NED :-)

Hello everyone,

finally my husband found time for another follow up scans (US and chest x-ray). He was really overdue, supposed to have them in January-February, but never bothered much. I love his calmness and optimism :-)

NED! Belated, but NED, as expected.

Next scans in a year. He is 4,5 years from surgery. Happy for him, our family and for the fact that scanxiety does subside with time.

Good health for everyone, enjoy the summer!

    Great news!

    Your husband has the best possible cancer with earlest stage possible :)  (thats what my Dr. told me when I was diagnosed with almost same sized tumor 8 years before)

    I wish him all the best --and 50 more years of NED!

    Great news!

    Thanks for sharing the news Allochka!  With 4.5 years out, are they talking about changing his scan regiment?

    So happy for you, him and

    So happy for you, him and your family!  Also great to hear that you can kick scanxiety at some point, as being new to all of this I had a rough run a couple of months ago leading up to my first scan.  Hoping to find that same calm approach.  Now you can enjoy the summer!!

    Thank you all for nice words!

    Thank you all for nice words!

    yes, scanxiety does get better. But years are needed, not months... but I guess sooner or later confidence in good outcome gets restored.

    Stub, he was getting scans every 6 months for 3 years. After that doc said once a year. This was first (and belated) yearly scan. And doc doesn’t request chest x-rays anymore.

    But I insisted that they are important, and husband did it just for me. He himself is very relaxed and sure and would go on just with US. But I hope I‘ll be able to persuad3 him for chest scans for at least 2-3 years more.

    Do wait for a few months to congratulate him?  I think not.  Glad he had the tests done and all is well.

    Congratulations, nothing is

    Congratulations, nothing is better than a confirmation that Uncle has visited! Cheers! Wish one day the scanxiety will be gone completely.
