Hello Colon Club warriors,
I had my 9 month after chemo scan in early May and there was no evidence of disease. I am due for my next scan in mid to late August. So, we are doing our best to enjoy this summer. We are currently on the way home from a family vacation in Florida. Next week, we will celebrate our daughters 14th birthday. One thing cancer has given me is an appreciation for the ability to live and enjoy moments. As a fellow cancer warrior told me, this is a marathon and not a sprint. Use your energy wisely.
Physically I am doing okay. I continue to have hand/foot neuropathies. I have to be careful with my diet but that is to be expected when someone yanks out 18 inches of colon, right? Mentally I do okay most of the time. I find it easier to assume a recurrence will occur than not. Only time will tell, right?
Best wishes to all fellow colon cancer warriors out there!
