A high and narrow peak for relapse occurs at two years, which then comes down again. A second, much-flatter peak for relapse occurs at about five years.

it's been difficult to find information on this. looks like about 2/3 of recurrences are in the first two years or so; extrapolating, that would mean if I got to two years, my risk could be down to 15 percent. still not great, no. and I'm only guessing, really. I'm finding a few articles that talk about survival time after recurrence - two to five years seems common.
