          Yh okay thanks, working my way back to full fitness, back at work almost full time now. Had my first 2 month checkup which was clear, next one in 2-3 weeks.

          I'm planning it so i'm doing 1 big event between every 2 month checkup, just to have something to look forward too.

          One before last was WWE, I got back into it when I was ill as I couldn't sleep and it was the only thing on at 1-4am, so went to the live shows for the first time in the UK. Then a couple weeks ago I had a belated birthday/christmas BBQ with 50 friends or so. Next month is a football tournament i'm organising for MacMillan at my old school with some old friends, and a holiday to Berlin and Cornwall potentially!

          You doing well then?

            Good to hear you are recovering well. Long may that continue.

            Yes, I am fine. Three years out, I have no side effects and have no pschological issues so I feel very lucky. My consultant even went as far as mentioning I have only two more years of checks to go and then I only carry on if I wish to do so.
