    How do you guys find it best to cope with it? I have my next check up next week and the anxiety is really hitting me. I know Einhorn said I’m almost certainly cured based on my results and told me close to 100% chance of it working going in, but still can’t help myself lol. I spend time with family and friends and that helps but once I’m alone it keeps popping in my head.

    Afraid I can't be very helpful. The cure rate statistics are so overwhelmingly positive that I never doubted I was cured after my first post treatment scan....Sorry I can't help.

      That honestly is actually help insight. I imagine if something were to go wrong with such an early stage disease I’d imagine it would have gone south within the first year.
