As a TNBC survivor, the 3 year mark feels significant. I will see my breast surgeon for my annual checkup next week. There is way less stress and re-traumatization going back there now as compared to that 1 year visit, and in a way it almost feels like this visit is perfunctory. Still, I can't help feel a little of that old tension sneak in. I'm wondering if the more senior BC survivors on here can tell me, is there ever a time when you feel like that shadow looming in the distance really dissipates, where you are no longer looking over your shoulder waiting for cancer to strike again?
