I dreamt about this day so many times, when I could post a victory on this thread.
Yesterday was my surgery's and stoma's birthday. My life is going so well. I'm working and having a ball with my baby girl. And I'm doing bloodwork every two months, CTs every six months and a colonoscopy per year. Today I had my second scan since End of chemo and everything is ok!
I'm so happy, I could explode.
I hope I still have a long life ahead and I can inspire someone who is young and has rectal cancer and has to go through everything we have to, that life can be really sweet again!
Keep fighting and keep hoping!
All the best for everyone,
