Much to my surprise, late last night I realized I’d almost completely forgotten a fairly major milestone. 3 years ago yesterday I finished the very last of my radiation treatments which was the very last of my cancer treatments. 3 years is a big deal for Triple Negative breast cancer because the incidence of recurrence drops dramatically after 3 years. And while that “3 year” countdown may have begun after my surgery (so 3 years was up back in January), it’s comforting to think that I’ve been 3 years without having any treatment at all. And I’m fine. I’m fantastic. I’m healthy. This was my post then: Graduating from Breast Cancer “School” I’ve got more hair, I’m 20 lbs lighter, and I’ve got a book coming out in 2 months, 16 days and 15 hours (but who’s counting?)…but I can’t really say I’m wildly happier today. Because I was really, really, really happy on that day 3 years ago.
