Congratulations, apple*! This is a major rite of passage indeed. I have a good friend who (thus far successfully) completed chemo for lymphoma six years ago. Even now he remembers the *exact* date of his last treatment.

I have only just caught up to this, and my heartfelt best wishes go out to you apple! The long haul is over and now you can begin to think about getting back into the routine of things. I went through the whole chemo rad thing in 2007 and so far is clear. It's quite neat the cameraderie of seeing the same people every day going through the same thing, you realize ALOT of people are dealing with various conditions.

You look great! I remember seeing a very tall PROUD woman completely bald, just such a confidence in her posture - that was beautiful to see.

I was diagnosed with malignant melanoma a few years back. They excised the cancer from my back and I've been free of it for a few years now. I didn't go through chemo, but I know the kind of shock a cancer diagnosis can bring.

It definitely changes your life. But for some reason, it's always for the better. It's all about balance. You lose one thing, you gain another. That seems to be lifes strange design.

Glad to know you're feeling better!

My husband had cancer and had to be hospitalized for one week every 3rd week for chemo infusions. He was quite an attraction to the nurses who couln't believe he was actually doing an aerobic slide as he was hooked up to the IV. It's what kept him going. Let your music fill your heart and soul with strength and peace of mind.

I'll be pulling for you. My husband has been in remission for almost three years now. Every day is a gift. Stay Strong....

I too am so very pleased with your news nd prayerful for your complete recovery. Six years ago i found out i had a bad blood cancer and they put me through a year of hard chemo. Now I'm living a normal life and planning for a lot more.

The only advise I want to offer is that you work with a physical therapist to get your strength back. I have been having 5 years of back and neck pains, living with it. Recently I went to a physical therapist who put me on a strengthening program and almost all of my pain is now gone. I never understood how intertwined strength, health, pain, and such are. And chemo sure takes so much out of you, so you need to put the strength and such back in which therapy can do easily.

May God continue to give you the desires of your heart.

Hi apple,

It's wonderful to see how loved you are here. I've always enjoyed reading your posts. You exude a certain kindness that adds a real sort of 'community' feeling here on the forum. I wish you lots of white light to fill you with strength and peace.
