I had cancer 7 years ago and had two surgeries. Now I have a new growth which is being watched, I was told to follow up in six months (1.5 months remaining). When I first got this news I was over the moon that I didn’t need immediate surgery but now that my rescan is upcoming I am extremely anxious. I don’t want to spend the next 1.5 months feeling unhappy and anxious but I’m not sure how to block these feelings out.

What a whirl your mind must be in right now! How are doing today?
Here are some resources you may wish to take a look at, I think they will help:
Has anyone else got any advice for Melonie?
I know this reply is somewhat late.
I think this is a hard one, because this isn't something that you can easily dismiss. The only thing that I can think of is to find a distraction.
For myself personally, I find that the best distraction is running/jogging. All my problems seem to fade away when I go for a good jog.
Perhaps throw yourself into a new hobby?
A good book?
Enroll in a short course?
PS. How did the follow up go?
