I finished Chemo 4 months ago and radiation a few weeks ago. I've just started back at work after being away since late October - 8 months. My greatest fear is that I'll have a recurrence and have to do chemo again, although I know I'd do it. I feel my breasts constantly and think I find different lumps which aren't there the next day. Before this episode, I wasn't an anxious person, and whilst I keep these fears to myself, they rise up to bite me at random times.
I, too, will be having all the scans I can to check, I've already had a colonoscopy for that reason.
So, its good to hear that this is a common fear for those of us who've been there - I'll be going to my GP for things that I would've dismissed in the past. You can't be too careful.
