Good news, 4 years on

Hi everyone

I finished chemo/radio for 2b in November 2016. 
Recently, I had some groin and back pain that came and went. My oncologist sent me for a CT scan which showed an enlarged lymph node in the pelvic region, so she sent me for a PET scan to see if the dreaded thing had returned. 

I had my PET a few days ago and my oncologist called today to say that it was all clear and no signs/lighting up of cancer. The node is enlarged but not cancerous and no cancer anywhere else. I feel so relieved to say the least.

I had been so scared as you can imagine these last couple of weeks of the scans and waiting for the results. I have had a few ups and downs and scares in the past 4 years but this was definitely my biggest scare. Just hearing the words NODE and PET scan from my doctor sent me into a spin of anxiety.

During this time I went through all of my old posts on here which was cathardic and made me remember all that I have been through. Going through my old posts also reminded me of some ladies that we have lost on here. These ladies offered so much support even though they were going through their 2nd or 3rd battle. My heart.

This forum has truly been a lifeline for me. There are times where I have found more support here than with my own friends and family (who have been and continue to be amazing supports). It's just that we get it.

My love to all.

Hi Rosie

I am so glad to hear that your scan came back all clear, it must be a huge weight off and hopefully that pain that keeps coming and going starts to fade away.

Best
