I don't post much anymore but do check in from time to time. In late December I was at Mayo Rochester for my annual review. All is clear and I was released to my primary Dr. A little mixed feelings about it all. I love being considered cured but will miss the care that I got at Mayo.
On a side note, My LARS that had been pretty will under control had really taken a turn the last 4 months or so. I mentioned this to my Oncologist and after asking some more questions, he recommended taking Metamucil once a day. I have to say it has been a life changer. I fell about 90% back to my pre-surgery self. What a blessing!
Hang in there all who are in the midst of this thing!
