My Regular 6 month oncologist visit

I went to my regular 6 month check up Wednesday and it was the most boring check up yet! No blood work. My next visit in 6 months is with his nurse practitioner and not him, which is significant downgrade on vigilance for recurrence. I will only have annual exams with him now! It’s been about 2.5 years since I ended active treatment. Another thing that’s good is that I think all the bad stuff I attributed to Tamoxifen, which I will likely be on until I die of old age, seems to have been related to the long road of recovery from chemo. I hardly notice it anymore! You never “get back to normal life” after treatment- it’s finding the new normal, but I’m extremely grateful for not having to face more treatment!
