Kirienne's surgery
« on: January 25, 2013, 11:28:11 AM »
I'm home! Surgery went well, but my sister told me that the surgeon told her I'll most likely need more treatment because due to the aggressive nature of this kind of cancer there is about a 30% of it coming back , so he'll be referring me to a regular Oncologist once I'm better healed from surgery. They told me there did not see evidence of spreading, but will have to wait for the pathology report to be sure.
I feel like crap, but have moments of feeling really good. The nurses told me that is normal and will be the case for a while. Those nurses were awesome, I could see how overworked they are, but they took great care of me.
I came home yesterday afternoon, but was too out of it to post here.
I love you all!!!

Welcome home, and may your further treatment work and be as smooth as possible!

Ya, those opiate on demand things do work until you push too often.  Seriously, you will heal and it does take as long as they say so be patient.  And good luck

Great to hear you are home and doing OK.   Fingers crossed for a good pathology report.    Yes, you WILL feel like crap for a while, probably a good 2-3 weeks before you start to feel really 'human' again  (alas - goes with that sort of op though :)  )  so just take things as easy as possible and rest.  Were they able to do it laparascopically, or did they need a big cut?

I'm feeling much stronger today, getting in and out of bed is not quite as hard. I know more about what the surgeon told my sister and best friend...he wants me to have 5 radiation treatments and 3 chemo sessions to kick this cancer's agressive butt. I'm sure he'll explain it all when I see him next on 2/19. Thanks for all of your prayers, pain meds consist of 1/2 ibuprofin about every 6-7 hours, but I have stronger stuff if I need it. Unless I'm occupied by visitors or phone calls, I'll be at chat on Sunday :-)
