This is Pam reporting back with with news about my recovery... well I think
the journey is coming to an end.

I saw the surgeon yesterday and he said my recovery has been going better than expected and he's released me to return to all my activities including cycling. Whoo-hoo!

And even better news... I saw the oncologist today and we discussed my case and he does not feel chemo will improve my changes so NO CHEMO! Double Whoo-hoo!!!! I pretty much dreaded the chemo the most.

I still have to follow-up with the oncologist 2 - 3 times a year for awhile and most liekly have colonoscopies for the next 3 years, but I'm not going to sweat the minor stuff.

Anyway thanks so much to everyone for being so kind and listening to me go on about the cancer. A special thanks goes out to Trekhawk and Ninaonbike.

Now to start exercising on a regular basis, lose some weight (my goal 25 lbs) and stay healthy through the next year!!! :)

Wow Pam - that is wonderful!! Hey, for someone who can go to Costco right after coming home from the hospital, biking should be a breeze - but, don't overdue it the first day. Maybe wait 'till the second day!!

Don't tell the doctor but I already went out on both my road and mountain bike - but I took it easy. Nothing hard, short rides. Since it's fall I want to get into mountain biking as soon as possible. It's a great time to be out on the trails since most are in good shape before the rains come. But I also plan on doing some road riding so I can do the Palm Springs ride with Nina in February.

WOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!!! That is indeed AWESOME NEWS!!! I'm so glad you're back on your bike and don't have to deal with Chemo.. Yeah, colonoscopies are no fun but it beats the alternative as you well know!
