3 years cancer free stage 4

Postby saltygirl » Tue Dec 19, 2023 3:26 pm

I am 3 years cancer free from stage 4 with braf, kras mutations. Nov 19 in 2020 I had my large surgery to remove my tumor, distant lymph nodes and complete hysterectomy. Dec 29 I had my ileostomy reversal. I have been cancer free since then. Hoping forever.
