Today's consultant appointment confirmed that I seem to be cancer-free[1], and I am now formally in follow-up.

I will have bone marrow tests every three months for the next three years, and I'll continue to see my consultant in clinic, I think on the same frequency (the next one is 3 months from now anyway).

[1] the definitive all-clear comes from a PCR test on a sample which looks for a faulty gene called PML/RARA which is a distinctive feature of APL; that test result hasn't come back and the consultant says that "it will trickle in eventually" but every single other sign points to me being all clear.

Best news I've heard in... Probably since I was accepted to adopt commodore three years ago.

I'm delighted and relieved for you all.
