Congrats from a 2-clear-in-a-rower! Here's hoping we stay that way! My next scope job is in December - I'm counting on it being an early Christmas gift.

Cheers - Maryland Mike

Congratulations on your all clear! (My urologist is Indian, and says "nice and clean," which is a bit graphic but still wonderful to hear.) I second what Mike says about anxiety. The anxiety before the check-up really does get better with each successive all clear. I'm on the 6-month check-up schedule (for one more year), and must say I don't get anxious at all now and haven't for quite a while. However, I'm optimistic by nature and know everyone is not like me!

Thanks much Mike. I really appreciate the guidance. Look forward to that time when I feel that way.

Joe,

Congrats! Each one is just as exciting as the last. :)

After a couple/few years you won't feel as anxious before each one and you'll feel just as excited when it comes back all clear each time!

All the best!
Mike

Thanks so much. It certainly is a great relief. Now it's time to give thanks, move forward and enjoy this beautiful fall season here in Boston.

I haven't written much during my journey. Trying to keep my head around things was difficult and felt all of you have your own issues and chellenges. But I have come forward for kind words and encouragement a few times and you've always provided.

Reading posts have also given me strength to continue on and that is so much appreciated as well.

Thank you all , thank God and God bless.
