Congratulations! That is wonderful news and I know such a relief for you. Your three-year mark is very encouraging to me. This month marks my 1 year anniversary of finding my tumor. I've now had 3 followup cystos, all good, but each time I am a bundle of nerves. At the last one, my blood pressure was finally somewhere near normal in the doctors office, so I guess I'm getting used to it. No pain, just self-imposed mental stress!
Definitely a reason for a special celebration!!!
Best wishes... Catherine

I had my cysto on Friday and all is good, no signs of a tumor anywhere. Thanks to everyone here for their encouragement and responses last week, I really appreciate it very much. My first cysto without being asleep wasn't as bad as I expected and everyone here helped with that last week. It was 3 years ago today they found the tumor and I started this journey, so glad I found this site, it has given me such peace to read about everyone's journey too. I will get my next checkup in July. Thanks again everyone.
