As many of you know, I had surgery last Monday to remove any residual cancer that was remaining. Surgery did go as planned. Actually, better than planned. The CT from November 6th showed a significant reduction and marked improvement in the cancer and that’s exactly what my surgeon saw once he got inside my abdomen during surgery. There was nothing left to get other than the omentum (which had to go). The surgeon performed a robotic omentectomy and I ended up spending one night in the hospital.
I feel pretty darn good a week out from surgery. I do have five incisions, but all are healing well and I’m up and moving around with minimal pain at this point. God is great! The outcomes and results from the treatment are amazing and heading into Thanksgiving, I am truly grateful.
I will go back to both the surgeon and my medical oncologist the week of December 1st and hope to be released both to go back to work (I’m getting bored pretty quickly) and to begin my last three rounds of chemo.
Much gratitude and appreciation for your prayers, positive thoughts and love.
