Thanks so much guys, once again.

My next big milestones, besides full-on running, are my chest scan next month, then my full-body PET, CT, and MRI scans on the one year anniversary of my surgery next April. If that turns up nothing, then it'll be looking pretty promising in terms of it being gone for good.

Just had my 8-month-mark  scans today.

Having to wait on the results is always a suffocatingly terrifying experience, but the last ones in August came back clear, so here’s hoping nothing’s changed since then.

Cancer really does change your life; things don’t just go back to the way were before once it’s removed. But whatever the results say, I’ll push forwards.

Best wishes again! One step at a time you'll get out of it.

Cheers man.
It's three days til I get my results, so I apologise to all if I seem a bit off in that time, I'm stressing outta my damn mind.
Just trying to keep myself distracted as avoid other stressors as much as possible.

By the way @KLAMarine, how are things with your recovery? Well I hope?

So far, so good. The chemo some months back seemed to do the trick: the swollen node on my neck shrunk away almost immediately.

Feeling very positive and I wish you the best on your follow-up!

I am thanks, just watching Netflix, playing some Doom Eternal, and doing my daily exercises to keep myself busy as it's my day off. :)

Thanks man, really glad to hear things are going well on your end! Hope chemo wasn't too rough on you.

If I were you, I'd have stomped the tumor repeatedly after it was removed. Just for extra catharsis. :)

Haha as satisfying as that would have been, it was taken away as medical waste and incinerated according to law haha. One of my friends actually joked about me asking if I could keep it in a jar. "Haha, who's laughing now ya little shit?"
