Hi and a very warm welcome to the online community

I'm glad to hear that your tumour has gone but it's natural to wonder what will happen next. When you say that your lymph nodes were affected do you mean that there was cancer found in them? 

I didn't have the same type of cancer as you, so don't know what normally happens with the lymph nodes, but by replying to you it will bump your post back to the top of the page where it'll hopefully be seen by someone who can help you further.

When you have a minute it would be really useful if could pop something about your journey so far into your profile as it helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Edit Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
