Joanne - of course we don’t know but I can tell you the same thing happened to my SIL and her’s was scar tissue. We all know there are no guarantees and time is on your side since it’s been 9 years.

Keep the faith and keep us posted.

On this day FIVE YEARS AGO! I was having surgery to remove the cancer. I am still NED.

Since then I have:

Travelled Europe

Learned to ride a motorcycle

Learned to play electric guitar

Learned some computer programming languages

Achieved a bachelors degree with honors.

I'm so happy to be here and I have been looking forward to being able to post on this thread.

Congratulations to all who have posted their 5year achievement, you have been such inspirations to me. Long may we all continue to dance in the storm.

Thank you
