Hi Tammy,
i just finished reading your post about the radiation. Does this mean you are home from the hospital and didn't need the exenteration after all? I sure hope so.

yes I'm Home!!

When the Dr was in doing my surgery, the cancer was connected to m pelvic wall. Since he didn't have "good" tissue all around the cancer, he said it was useless to take everything, because I would still have cancer. So, he just took the cancer, and scrapped as much from my pelvic wall he could. I do have an incision from my pubic bone, to about four inches above my navel. OUCH!!!

He said once I'm recovered, we will start Chemo treatments, and hopefully put this left over cancer in remission, or even, though only a slight chance, get cured of it.

Keep your fingers crossed, and maybe, I can knock this thing out this time!!

s Tammy

I'm so sorry your surgery was not able to bring about all that you had hoped. However, we will continue to be behind you, cheering you on through chemotherapy. Many of us here have been there, done that. And as usual are loaded with advice, tips and encouragement.
I hope you are taking it easy as yet, and allowing that body time to heal.
Keep in touch.

Hi Tammy,

It's goo that the doctor spared you needless surgery. I hope you take it easy and recover quickly so you can begin treatments that will take care of the cancer.

Hi Tammy

Glad you are home and glad that things went well.

I had that exact same cut in April when i had my hysterectomy for ovarian cancer. Once the staples come out you will feel 100% better. It is now Jan and my cut can hardly been seen.

I had 2 C-Sections when I had my kids and this cut healed better.

Keep in touch
