Today was my first six month check up since completing my lung cancer treatment (held at 9 months because of the appalling appointment system at the local hospital). I underwent a chest x-ray and the lung consultant says it looks fine. It was interesting to see how much more the remaining lung lobe had expanded - quite extraordinary.
I hadn't realised quite how terrified I was of re-entering the whole NHS system again. My pulse was raised and I'm sure my blood-pressure - though acceptable when taken - was up too. But the feeling of elation when it was over was enormous. I can relax again until the spring.
