Great news Ian happy for you.
Just to add to the good news stories today I got a letter from my consultant today saying following my three month scans (PET and MRI) that... (quote) I have seen the results of the scans, this shows a complete response to treatment with no evidence of any further disease which is excellent news, I will see you in clinic…
I have been more of a lurker on here rather than a poster but have had great help from Hazel and Ian plus 'other half’ who have all helped me on this journey, so if you are just starting this road, good luck with your treatment and stay positive.
high five cotswold boy and always great to hear good news stories.
Often think it gives others encouragement when they hear about this magic light at the end of the tunnel that so many get to visit after diagnosis and treatment.
Well pleased for you.

I've been following this post since January. Just been a lurker and following everyone's progress while muddling through the crappyness. Great helpful post by the way.....
I was just wondering which travel insurance companies you all went with when you have been away?
I have been through treatment for throat cancer (radiotherapy and chemo) that finished mid June. I've been back to see the Consultant today, scan results not yet back but had a good look around and says all is looking good. We were wanting go away to Spain for a week, but although I haven't been told any negative news today, I haven't been given an all clear as such.
Did you apply online, or did you ring round? Do you need a certificate from a Doctor/Consultant?
Not sure where to start.
Hugs to everyone who is feeling rubbish from their treatment. Xx
Hi half cent has you probably know I travel several tomes s year to sosinvsm here st min. Thus test I have taken s policy with b u p a cancer isn’t covered but rang them to do quote. I have friends who have travelled just the once and fir a few weeks policy have rung boot s. Thus week I found s new one fir next year yeah who will cover the cancer yippee don’t intend getting it again. Www.travelwith.com Maybe it’s becsuse I am a year out of treatment but worth checking with them. Glad you’ve followed our trials n tribulations but as u can see there is light at the end of the tunnel just a long journey some times. Remember to ask consultant if ok to travel

Have a look at the above.
I've booked a holiday next year and will be booking through them. Got this tip from a colleague of mine and he did a lot of research on holiday insurance as his wife has cancer and he highly recommended them as the best. I cant personally vouch for them yet but they have come up with a really good quote for my 2 weeks booked for Tenerife next year. ( recovered from throat cancer as you can see by my thread)
I will speak to a representative just to make sure all ok and as double check but it also has really good reviews on trip adviser.
Glad you found the post helpful and things are looking good for you.
Enjoy your holiday

Hi boys.yes thought you had been getting away too easy with my posts so just popped a few typos in to keep you all in your toes. Would say it's the spanish sun drying my brains but don’t want to gloat.( ok apart from Graeme who has it all year round )

Glad all is good and yes I did work at at Bletchley in a previous life ! But remember I did work in business travel and that was all codes for airlines and airports that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it lol
No typos in this message !
Hi my husband booked through the post office-(for a week in Greece last month-so similiar to your hol) & have just got same again- (for 4 days in Berlin) & that is £88 declared all the cancer stuff (he is on tablets for high blood pressure-so that included too)-finished treatment mid May-got all clear June. That price covers me too.
Like Hazel advised-he phoned them up & explained it as the doing it on line is tricky as doesnt include the specifics-treatment etc. so was quicker & easier.
Good luck & a holiday will do you the world of good. x
PS/ Anyone else reading-Joe just got his 3rd all clear & we're away again next week-(Berlin) making up for cancelled holidays!
Hope everyone else is ok.
Anyone going through the tough treatment-keep going-your rewards are'nt far away x
