Well, it's that time for me, too. I'm at 4 1/2 years. I'm usually not nervous, but this time I am. I've been having horrible problems with what seem to be my allergies, but you know how it is -- I've convinced myself it's back in my lungs. When does it get easier?!
Anyway, would appreciate any positive thoughts you could send my way...

(((((HUGS))))))). When DOES it get easier? At various times in my career, I too was sure I had a recurrance. Several times in both breasts, in my lungs (allergies/ post-nasal drip), my brain (TMJ), my bones (rad side effects)...I do hate that everything has to be something for us to worry about.

Sending you lots of positive vibes that it is a big old nothing...

Sending you positive vibes.......relax..........relax..........relax.......breathe .........breathe.......breathe. Hopefully, my relaxation method works for you!

Letting you know that I will be sending you prayers of calming nerves over this appointment on Thursday.

I will be watching for your update on the appt.

Hugs and Love,

I'm not sure it ever does get easier, Julie, but I do know that you're doing real well. That appt. will be very crowded because we'll all be with you. Sending you hugs for strength. Love, Luci

Julie, positive thoughts and prayers are going out for you. I guess it never really gets easier but we will all be there with you! L&H, Gail

Hi Julie

Love to you and Hannah

Julie, I will keep you in my prayers that you get a clean bill of health. I know how frightning it has to be for you younger girls. I wish it wasn't so. The answer has to be found soon. Hugs MK

I don't think it gets any easier, per se.  You just becomed more hardened and accepting.  I don't mean that in a bad way; believe me you've all see me at the very bottom of doubt abd despair.  I just try yo go day-by-day and not obsess too much.  Try to look foward to every possible little positive.  Retail therapy, for example.  Or a visit from a nice friend who will actually do something for you instead of stare at you with those scared eyes at how freaky you look.  I have to say I've gotten a little mean about that. I'm just too worn out to prissy up for visitors or to go out.  I'm a very tired cancer patient and if they are taken aback by my appearance, too bad.  It's me now. devil

Just want to add my good wishes for an uneventful visit. All I can say is Ditto to all the other advice and words of encouragement that you have gotten. Hugs, Lauri

Julie, I'll be there too.  I hate that we can't have a little ache or pain and not have to worry about it.  I'll be packing my prayers and caramels for the PCE.  You'll do just fine and we'll be waiting to hear the good report.  Hugs, Libby

Julie, all positive thoughts and crossable body parts crossed (prayers too) that checkup was normal. And I agree that it doesn't get easier at each visit, but the longer out in remission, for me, and hopefully for you, it has gotten easier NOT thinking about it in between. God Bless - L&H Glenda
