      I haven't been on in awhile.  I had two scares last year that made me think my cancer was back and I was no longer NED.  I was fine.  In January, I had a physical and my doctor found a polyp on my cervix.  I saw a GYN Oncologist yesterday and he couldn't remove it while I was in his office.  I will have it surgically removed on April 1, only a 30 minute procedure.  February 1, I had  my 6  month CT scan check up.  I got the results on Monday.  A nodule in my left lung has grown from 3.2 mm to 5 mm.  I have an enlarges lymph node

          Waiting sucks – I'm sorry you have to have additional tests and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is nothing.  Please post updates.
