I am a couple of weeks ahead of exactly 5 years but I had my breast tests today and all is well. So one step. Next one is my heart check up (got a slight problem, possibly from chemo) but I am pretty sure I am fine on that front. Then my oncologist in about 7 weeks to see if anything nasty is happening in the rest of me!!  Bit by bit...........................

    Congratulations! It's always such a relief to get good results from your scans.
    I know we are all different but what usually happens after 5 years?
    I've just ticked off my 4 year scans and I meant to ask what I can look forward to after next year but I didn't. I was initially told I would have 5 years of follow up with my oncology team (which seemed like forever back then...) and now I'm wondering what comes next?

    Excited for you and yes it will seem weird being set adrift after 5 years but it will be wonderful to do so.

    That is good news, Alison. I only hope we all get the chance to decide whether or not to extend past five years of AI :) Marg.

    Hi @Afraser
    GREAT NEWS.  I am so happy for you.  The statistics are really still only kept for the 5 year mark so we all hope that ''they'' will decide to keep statistics for longer.
    Have a great weekend - and celebrate !
    Summer   :)

    @Afraser I asked if I would be on 5 or 10 years. My breast surgeon said as no nodes at this stage 5 years (so 4 to go) but he said that might change in 5 years anyway. So just have to wait and see.
    Congratulations on your 5 years clear.  X
