Within six days, I have had two doctor appointments with two different doctors. The first doctor is an oncologist. I go see him because I am a breast cancer survivor. It is standard practice in the US for breast cancer survivors to see their oncologists several times a year for five years after completing treatment. If there is no recurrence, you are good to go. If there is a recurrence the whole process starts over again.
The second doctor was my neurosurgeon. He says if the CT scan in June looks good, I will not have to see him anymore. Hooray! I mean he is a very nice man and all but... I don't think he would mind me saying that in the least. I think he would echo the words my radiation oncologist said to me the day I completed my 33 rounds of radiation on August 20, 2008. He met with me after my final "zapping" and told me in no uncertain terms to get out and never come back. That was an order! I am doing my best to follow his instructions! LOL!
If the truth be told, unless you have experienced it, people have a hard time understanding the psychological trauma which takes place when a person has battled life-threatening illnesses such as but not limited to cancer, heart disease or strokes. They come at you from out of nowhere and no one can guarantee that you will get better and never have to deal with it again.
So, how do you deal with that uncertainty? The same way we need to deal with any sort of uncertainty in our lives and there are actually quite a few of them. We remember that we are living in God's hands and He's got us covered... no matter what!
