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!
Small TA Grade 1, May-06; recur (2 tiny), same, June-08; TURBTs both times. BCG begun July-08, dosage to 1/3rd May-10, completed treatment December-11. All clear since 2008.
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.
