Great to hear, I am at about 2 years cancer free with scans and blood test coming up in December. I now have chronic conditions that require continuous therapy as a lasting effect, physically my body has not been the same. On the positive side, seems like the last 6 months I have been on the upside physically with the continued therapy.

Congrats on 2 years! Yeah, I don't think our bodies will ever be the same. I am in pain daily but I continue to do my best. I hope your scans and blood work go well!

Congratulations josie! Sometimes you have to deal with a lot of bad things in life but somehow things tend to get better. That's the kind of thing I like to hear from people. Overcoming something (like cancer) and then being very happy about it. May you have more cancer free time to spend with your kids and all of us here on BO for many years to come!
