I saw my consultant again today.  She is pleased with me, says not to worry about my recent run of colds "there's just a lot of nasty things circulating, and your bloodwork is completely normal" and is giving me six months this time before seeing her again. She reminded me as always that I can always call the department if I am worried.  I told them that I still remember very clearly what it was like getting ill in the first place, and I certainly will get in touch if I think it is happening again.  After all, my confidence in my knowledge of my own body has been borne out, if not in the happiest of ways! 

Bone marrow samples will continue at 3-monthly intervals until three years after "end-of-therapy".  We are now at 11 months after end-of-therapy, so nearly 1/3 of the way there.  I asked if I was right to assume that they would call me if there was anything to be concerned about in the bone marrow samples, rather than waiting for my next appointment, and she confirmed that this is the case.

I'm glad you have these reassurances. And HUZZAH for (nearly) reaching the 1/3 milestone after end-of-therapy.

It sounds as if you're making real progress.

I have to confess. I have days when I work full time but I'm nowhere near doing a full working week even now.

I do feel very guilty about this which often leads to overdoing it.

The other issue is that I only count paid work and not the unpaid but actually more strenuous parent wrangling and chores . Are you perhaps doing a more than full time working week once you factor those in?

A friend who's a year ahead of me is now working full time again which gives me hope.

That's funny, I happened to meet my neighbour who had cancer, at the bus stop this morning. She's two years on and still getting better slowly. But she looks so much less flattened now than a couple of years ago.
