imageChris - 2 months post-treatment - CR appt  Hi everybody.  Well, it's been almost 2 months since I finished treatment.  Yesterday I saw my CR surgeon/doctor.  She performed a finger exam, then a small scope inspection.  It seemed very thorough and [whew!] painless.  Great news!  She couldn't find any evidence of a tumor and only a really tiny spot of scar tissue.  We discussed my follow-up treatment plan.  She said that I should see her every 3 months and that my oncologist (who I will see in April) …More…
