Topic: Three Years....

Hi Everyone

I am very good at lurking around this wonderful supportive forum, and very bad at giving anything back.  So today, I am trying to make amends for that.

I am just celebrating three years since a good doctor here in the uk took his knife to my CC and so far, everything is great! smile

As a reminder, I did not have adjuvant chemo - not really the done thing here and didn't qualify for BILCAP.

I might start counting my success in months now, rather than days or weeks!

Thank you to everyone who posts - and hallo to all the other lurkers like me.

Congratulations!  What great news.  Your update brings hope to those of us who have had family members recently diagnosed.

Yah Helen! I'm glad you came out of the shadows to give us this wonderful news!! I think you should start measuring by seasons! smile

Re: Three Years....

Dear Helen, such great news! By the way you DO give back just  by being here! Here is wishing for you to reach a point where measuring will stop as will all worries and just enjoy! Thank you for making this a great news day!

Re: Three Years....

That's fabulous. Woohoo for you. Start counting in seasons at least if you can't get to years just yet. Congrats!
