The dreaded moment I had been anticipating and waiting with restlesness was over almost before I had time to say respond: "I'm fine". Not a bang of any kind, not even a whizz. Just a short meeting with doctor Number six(?, not really sure, I did remember her as one of the last ones): "everything is fine, all the results are great and the pictures look normal".
A sigh of relief, turning into a near cardiac arrest with: "This first year is of course the tough one, when lymphoma most likely returns, but the next two years are also very important, as we need to be sure that it doesn't renew itself". I knew all of this, but the way she said it all just got me off-guard.
This year, my check-ups will be every four months (late May the next one). We had a wee chat and after I had told her about my sleeplesness (between my tests and the meeting), she wrote me a prescription for sleeping pills. Now I can sleep whenever I want to (as he wrote, while realising that it was already over 2AM...).
So I'm fine. Again. Needless worrying and all that. I'm just a very happy, healthy man.
