Cindy Very interested in your post. I am the dad Katja referred to. As she mentioned I was on the capecitebane arm of the trial last year. Two year scan due in August at St James's Leeds.
Your question about cc coming back will be uppermost in your mind right now - but one thing I have realised is that you should be very grateful for your meeting with your astute doctor - getting to 'first base early' seems to be a universal point in any favourable outcome with cc or any other carcinoma.
As for moving on and putting it behind you .... I was / am able to get to what I called an "I'm ok today - and that's what counts".
I think I would say yes you can move on - I have just got back from a break in the Lakes with a walk over Catbells on a gloriously sunny day - I really thought days like that were behind me when I was in your position last year.
Do keep us informed of your progress and your position on the Bilcap trial. If you are on the capecitebane arm we would be more than happy to give you all the info you need.
Like Kate, I hope you are recovering well. We have found the network of oncologists and the treatment in the UK for cc to be perhaps a little more focused without the concern for second opinions or searches for centres of excellence - and of course we don't have insurance or financial worries as an additional concern.
Just a word of support too for Helen Moremont and AMMF in the UK. She is a real champion of the search for some answers. I was so pleased to ge able to raise some funds for them - more details google 'justgiving malcolm robinson'
My tip for using this board - start on the Good News / What's Working page. That and the 'power of cindy' is just what you need right now.
