Cancer was one of the best things to happen to me ... but I worry about the future
Date:6/11/2008

ncer." Cancer didn't stop his studies: he went back to university, completed his degree and went on to do a Masters degree in Glass. He has also married his long-term girlfriend.

Dan has not suffered any particular problems following his treatment, although he finds he is more susceptible to common colds and other illnesses that are going around.

"I'm much more aware now of my own body and if anything is slightly out of kilter, I'm probably a lot more paranoid about it," he says. "On a day-to-day basis I'm fairly relaxed, but if I have an ache or pain I start to worry.

"One thing I am getting a bit worried about is that I'm coming up to five years in remission, and will be signed off by the doctors in June. Thereafter it's up to me. People say I'm cured but I don't see it like that. Something could crop up. It worries me that I won't have any more medical checks. I know that if I find anything that's odd I can go straight back to the clinic rather than the GP, which is good because the GP route was a bit of a nightmare. So that is reassuring. But I get reassurance from having regular checks, from having a blood test and even if I don't hear anything after the blood test has been taken, I still know someone has seen it and it's OK. I would prefer to keep the checks going for longer."

Before his chemotherapy the doctors talked to him about fertility and he had sperm samples frozen. The samples were good quality, but, as he was young, fit and healthy (apart from the cancer), he knows he has a good chance of his fertility returning to normal levels, although he hasn't re-visited the fertility clinic to check yet.

Dan says he has become very health conscious in terms of fitness levels and diet. "I drink a lot of green tea!"
