2. Congratulations!

What they don't tell you is that you will have small moments of paranoia before every doctor's appointment hereafter. Scary, but it makes the good news from those appointments even sweeter. Celebrate!

24. I don't tend toward paranoia. I have an adversarial relationship with cancer.

If it comes back, I will take that as a challenge.

Right now my concern is my Thyroid. My TSH levels are fine due o the Synthroid. I will get an ultrasound Wednesday to check on my Thyroid.

5. Hey alfredo

I don't know you. I haven't been part of your journey. You and I may not have exchanged words in the relatively short time I've been part of the forum.

That said, I'm happy for you. I want everyone to overcome cancer. Damn awful disease. Enjoy each day!

Good for you! I never realized how long this sort of treatment and recovery would be, and how many small steps were involved. i recently passed my one year since the start of treatment, and that felt pretty strange.

28. It is a long slog. I still need my feeding tube.

My beard has not grown back, but there's enough for a pitiful goatee. I hadn't shaved since August 1969, so I guess it was time for a change. The goatee was my wife's idea. I even bought a norelco shaver. I love gadgets
