My Doctor called me the the path report. low grade noninvasive. really great news for me. He said that I would need a scope every three months for several years due to the high recurrence rate. He did say that my type usally came back as low grade.

I cannot thank the folks enough in this group for their support and advise. It
is wonderful to fine so many caring people. My life will never be the same. I don't
have cancer now but I know it could be waiting around the next corner. The group will always be an important part of my life.

Congratulations on the pathology report--it could hardly be any better! :cheer: I had the same type of tumor as you did 6 years ago. I did have a recurrence of the same type 2 years later, but have been tumor-free ever since. Here's hoping your your future is equally "uneventful."
