Topic: 3 1/2 years

Good morning everyone,

I haven't posted much on here for a few months, but I still check in to see how everyone is doing.  July 29 was my 3 year, 6 month anniversary from my surgery (right lobe resection and gallbaldder removal).  I am doing well and so far, remain cancer-free.

I guess I just wanted to remind everyone that there IS hope. We have some survivors coming to CC.org, sharing their experiences and I hope it gives everyone the strength and hope that we all need when dealing with cholangiocarcinoma. 

CC.org has been a great source of inspiration for me and I think the world of all of you.

Hugs,
Sue

Today is a new day. Congratulations, you are already a survivor!

Sue,
You are an inspiration.  It is truly wonderful that you remain cancer free.  I too seldom post anymore, but keep myself updated everyday. 
Namaste,
Karen

Wishing all God's blessings!

Sue- Wonderful, wonderful post. I just had my 6 month Ct scan it was all clear.  I had my gallbladder, right lobe of my liver and bile duct resected in January. 6 months of chemo therapy I will finish on August 17.  Thank you so much for posting it's true there are many survivor strories out there and I personally would like to hear some more. Wishing you continued good health.

SUE!!!!
I am so happy my cancer buddy is still on the wagon. Now skootchy over because I have a feeling many more people will be joining you. They are learning so much about this cancer that at some point hopefully we will all be on the cancer free wagon with you.

Sue and Kris,

I'd like that to be a very big cancer free wagon, thank you very much!  Wouldn't THAT be nice?

Re: 3 1/2 years

Sue,
It is so great to hear of survivors like you!  My onc told me that if the cancer is going to recur it will generally happen in the first 2 - 3 years....so you are past that time frame!  Congratulations!
