IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR FOR ME. I had the extensive blood tests this morning and next week the CT Scan followed by the session with the cancer doc. I had my pouch scopped recently and it was fine. I just hit seven yeaqrs since my colon went bye bye due to early stage CC and while I had a lot of anxiety all the time at first, fear of illness and death I guess, now all the fear is stuffed into this time of year until I hear the doc say "you are fine". Can migrated CC hide out someplace and come back after this long or is the five years they talk about really a "you are cured" mark? CC runs in my family and the individuals I know who had it treated early are still above the sod. My own father refused to see a doctor when the symptoms showed up back in the 1960s, "Only hemmoroids", he said and he didn't make it. I don't drinlk or I would be doing that for this three weeks. I live a healthy lifestyle and all. Is there a time when we know CC is gone for good?
