Stephanie - we've all been (and are) in your shoes. Being finished with chemo/radiation was such a strange feeling. I had been seeing a doctor on such a regular basis that I still wanted to see one! I wanted someone to check me out and make sure I was OK. From what I've read and observed, it can take quite a long time before stop thinking about it. We have to come to grips with the fact that we have literally done every single thing we can do to rid our bodies of this beast. Worry (ha ha) won't keep the cancer from coming back.
I do find I worry much less now than I used to. I finished my last treatment February 2011. One of the hardest days of my journey was finding out that when I was finished with chemo/rads that there was no test that existed to tell me that I was free of cancer. It's a day I'll never forget. I was truly shocked. I'd just never realized before that there is no test. If one is ever discovered, it will forever change the lives of everyone on the planet!
Just take this one day at a time. As soon as you feel better, please do yourself a favor and go out and celebrate being finished with chemo. You'll be glad you did. It's definitely something to celebrate!!
