welcome aboard and I ASSume you are a colorectal Canuck by your username ?
If you are out of active treatment and monitoring, there IS a sense of being set adrift and on your own, and it is scary.
BUTT .... You are NOT on your own !
Talking things out IS a good step and we are always HERE for you ...BUTT
sometimes it is good to talk to counsellors skilled in dealing with patients having issues.
EVERY ache and pain is NOT ... IME ... a recurrence. I know.
I am an old fart with a shitload of aches and pains, none of which are recurrences, and still a 12+ year Stage IVa CRC survivor.
BUTT if EVERY ache and pain is causing YOU concern = deal with it homie.
waiting for scan results = "scanxiety" which we all know a lot about on this forum.
what is on the scan or not
WILL NOT CHANGE between now and the scan results
what is ?
what IF ?
Live with what IS
Cheers and Harmony in the Journey
