I havn't posted on here in ages. Since I was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma (oral cancer) in Oct '08, once I got through the horrendous surgeries I just wanted to get back to 'normal' as quickly as possible and put the cancer behind me. It's been six months since my last check-up, and I have to see the specialist again on March 10. The nerves are already starting to hit me. How do other folks out there manage to settle in to the longer-term routine of check-ups? How do you deal with those nerves when you've had 'X' number of months where you don't have to think about your Cancer - then realize you have to face that possibility again. Sometimes I really struggle with the fact that while we might be in remission, might even be 'cured' - we're never really free of it. Tamara
