Today's consultant appointment confirmed that I seem to be cancer-free[1], and I am now formally in follow-up.

I will have bone marrow tests every three months for the next three years, and I'll continue to see my consultant in clinic, I think on the same frequency (the next one is 3 months from now anyway).

[1] the definitive all-clear comes from a PCR test on a sample which looks for a faulty gene called PML/RARA which is a distinctive feature of APL; that test result hasn't come back and the consultant says that "it will trickle in eventually" but every single other sign points to me being all clear.

I may be a day late hearing it but that is the best news I've heard all day...all week probably- possibly even all year...
