One year down!

That's wonderful news, Sean. Keep fighting the good fight. I do fully empathize regarding this cancer that keeps on giving, and others not understanding it. That's okay. We do and we are here for each other! Congrats!

Sean,

Congrats on the one year anniversary. Good to hear that treatment is working.

Soon, you will start to feel sorry for the hollow-cheeked people, standing outside their place of employment in the hot sun or freezing rain, trying to suck down a smoke on their all-too-short break. Then you will know that the nicotine demons have moved on. WTG! (smoking used to be such an enjoyable habit, finally no longer missed.)

Best,
Jack

I was diagnosed on August 10, 2016. I had the tumor removed on August 16, 2016. After several cystos and several rounds of BCG I am still cancer free! That's one year down and just now ahead of me! I'm also one year off the cigarettes and I am just now becoming okay with it. I feel great most every day.

I know that I am not out of the woods by a long shot. Most non-cancer people don't understand that way of thinking - that I can feel great but still have a small shadow cast over my life because I know "it" can come back any time. But I don't dwell on that sad fact, but I don't pretend it isn't there either.

Thanks for this forum and your help. I appreciate it.
