      Scanphobia again…it sure doesn't get any easier…I want to believe I am still NED…I want to believe it will be a clear…YET…I worry they will find something…People tell me not to worry and think positive…If I think positive and it's not good…then I am totally destroyed…if I think the worse and it's a clean set of scans then I am relieved…this will probably never change!

          Know what you mean, when I was going through all my surgeries i had a girfriend that kept sayin 'i'm sure everything is just fine, you know I have a sixth sense aboth these things".  Third surgery, I told her please no more predictions..they all had been wrong. 

          We'll all think positively for you!  Good luck.
