Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Hello! I recently scanned NED as well so 2.5 after surgery and just over 3 with a clean bill of health. My doctor wants me to scan one last time on the 6 month interval, but I am concerned over receiving too much radiation and will in all likelihood refrain from another CT scan until the 12 month ma...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

We have all been there. It is healthy to have all of the emotions, just be sure to work through them. What i learned in the early stages of my diagnosis is to inform yourself and to always have a plan. one step at a time and deal with only what is in front of you. fear is normal, i still fear what c...

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Welcome to the forum...we have all been there from the start and most of of us are here now. You are in good company and we are here to help. Being afraid is normal, I am still afraid.

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

Okay, guys...here we go. It's my turn next week to get through my check-ups. It's been 2 years since surgery and just over 1.5 years since chemo ended. I feel great, no physical worries, but anxious none-the-less. You just never know with cancer!

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.

hey, i had blood before and it was nothing. it actually takes time for aspirin even low doses to completely leave your system and lessen the side effects. i doubt it is anything related to your diagnosis, likely just a hemi. hang in there!

Re: NEW-Need some positivity here.
