Sadie,
 
I am glad to know you are feeling better and also that you are approaching your 6 year anniversary. You count from the end of treatment and I count from the beginning when I had my lumpectomy. I guess I want to believe that I was "cured" with the surgery.
 
What is the proper time period to begin the "count-down"?

Hi Nuzzy's Nanna,

I think many people count like you do.  My oncologist said the 5 year time line began with the medications given to patients after treatment.  For those who they will be helpful for, they take them for 5 years.  I also count from the end of treatment just to be sure I am in the window of time I think I am.  My explanation must be as clear as mud.  

How are you doing?  Your pretty far out there too, aren't you?

Warmly,
Sadie

I see my onc tomorrow for another 6 month check up. However, after the last one he said if I had no further problems  during the next 6 months he only wanted to see me once a year. I just passed my 5 year mark for my lumpectomy and that is when I started my clock. I'll see what the onc says. If he asks me to schedule an appointment in 6 months then I will know in his opinion I have not completed my 5 years.

Hi triples! My blood test is tomorrow after work. BTW I started counting after the darn tumor was found as I know how lucky I am to have it found when it was so small and fast growing. That'll be 4 years this August 11. Blessings and love to you all, Gail

Sadie,
 
Thanks for asking. My appointment went well. My onc said he thought I was "cured" but since I carry the BRCA2 mutation I still am at a higher risk for developing a second cancer. So I will continue having a mammogram and MRI once a year and hope for the best.

Happy Mother's Day

Gail...I hope you receive good results from your blood test.

Nuzzys...What wonderful news.  I wish you many more healthy, happy years ahead.

Sadie...Congrats on your almost 5 year mark.  My onc said for him, the 2 year mark after treatment is a milestone.  I won't reach that mark until Feb. 2011, makes me a little nervous.  So far everything is good. 

Best wishes to all.

  Anna,
You only have eight months to go!  Glad to hear things are going well. 
I remember that 2 year mile stone.  I was relieved to reach it.  Then my oncologist said let's watch for the five year mark.

Hope you have a great day!

Warmly,
Sadie

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to be better about checking in.  We had another beautiful day in the NW.  Last week we had hail and rain.  This week we've mostly had sunny days. 

I saw my oncologist last Friday.  Things continue to go well.  She orderd a mammogram and decided to request an MRI too.  She said she would sleep better if I did the MRI.  I want her to sleep well!

I went shopping and bought my first sandals of the season.  I am looking forward to shoes without socks.

Anna~ Did you have a good weekend?  Hope you are feeling well.

Warmly,
Sadie
