thx guys, prs 6 years, that's great.
Jolene congrats on 3 years, was told first 2 years are most critical, you did your chemo after chemo/rad, that makes big difference.
I still remember my chemo post chemo/rad, 6th round, was so brutal, prs and some other member helped me to get through, will never forget that.
MedMad , just stay focused what is in front of you, radiation peak is some where between 16-20 weeks, but works for years after. It's good thing your surgeon is W&W expert. Anxiety, was there, that's normal ,I kept busy doing research, didn't know till last minute what will happen, was dealing with 3 hospitals, 2 were pushing for surgery, was hoping from beginning for WW, but ready to deal with whatever comes through the door. After chemo/rad went back to work to preoccupy my mind.
It is hard to stay focused, some times waiting is toughest one to deal with.
I had scope, MRI and CT right after radiation and 3 months after start of radiation , decision was made than.
Good luck !
