Congrats!
I'm just a dude who still can't believe he had a resection and went through chemo (currently 7 years NED). Is this real life?

Congrats! I was due for #9 today, but now put off another week due to low platlets...and it has already been 3 weeks. My DR did say the very end might be harder and certainly my platlets are taking their sweet time regenerating. But only 3 more to go...so close, but also seems far away. And there you are...all done. That is something worth celebrating! Congratulations again!
