                      Congratulation's!!! The first couple of year's its alway's hard and for me Paranoi set in until about the 3rd or 4th year's.7 years out for me now and I don't even think much about the TC anymore.I had Non-Seminoma stage 1.The Oncologist told me after 2 year's it would be unusual for a Relapse.Of course the check up's every 6 month's are wise to keep.It sounds to me like your Doctor's were way more aware of other problem's like Low Testosterone,that can cause other problem's down the road.5 years after TC I had to bring up to my Oncologist about a Testosterone Test.It was quite low(under 250) and Im awaiting the result's of the 2nd one this week.Your lucky you got that addressed as well. Good Luck

                        well done!

                        I'm coming up to one year of diagnosis and a while later for the chemo. Great to hear such a good success story!
