Fear of a Cancer Recurrence; An Emotional Conversation With Courtney Forget

A cancer recurrence is every cancer survivors greatest fear. In her return visit to the WE Have Cancer podcast, Courtney Forget talks intimately about this fear. We also discussed:

  • How she went from looking forward to her ileostomy reversal - as discussed in Episode 43 - to loving her life with a permanent ostomy.
  • Living with the constant fear of a cancer recurrence after having two "cancer scares."
  • The importance of getting second, and even third, opinions.
  • Her thoughts on being naive about her initial diagnosis and how she looks at her survivorship today.
  • Why she's not a fan of ringing the bell at her cancer center after completing treatment.
  • The role her husband has played as her cancer caregiver.
  • The reason she adopted a Greyhound dog and why she's training him to be a therapy dog.
  • The challenge of moving to a new city and finding a new Oncologist.
