Gotta tell someone


Recommended Posts

June 15 was my 5 year post diagnosis for stage 3/4 ovarian cancer.  Today was my quarterly check up.  (covid threw off the schedule slightly.)  My oncologist doesn't want to cut me loose yet, but she is pleased with my progress and is moving me to every 6 months.   I go back just after my 5 year post treatment anniversary, December 6.   I don't know if I"m ecstatic or terrified.

Concur...brother had bone cancer with a graft following misdiagnosis many years ago (more than 20)...they now look at him annually.  Even though he continues to smoke like a non-EPA compliant smokestack, even the lung screens remain clear...

CELEBRATE!!!! 

 

Oh the five year remission mark is huge.  I remember it well when my wife and I went to that appointment - I think that was the most nervous we were since chemo ended.  

I was nervous, but not due to the 5 year thing. I'd thought it came back and was in my head. I've been having horrific stress headaches.  Nope, my numbers were completely normal.  Doc does not want to cut me completely loose owing to the type and staging. I really should not be here. I'm one of the lucky 20%.   I think if I freak out at 4 or 5 months she will send orders for a blood draw.

 

Was it you or your wife? I'm so glad you are both well. How long has it been now?

More than 20 years post! That's fantastic. I'm happy for your family.

I am so happy for you. The doctor will continue to see with check ups and blood draws. That is very good.
