Topic: Mom had her surgery April 17th, radiation is next.
Mom had her surgery. They couldn't get all of the tumor cells out b/c the tumor was located right on top of the three main veins, but they got the most they could. She has early stage. She starts radiation in about a month.
She's in a lot of pain. The incision is a long one. I stayed in the hospital with her for 5 days and had to go home. It breaks my heart to hear her in pain over the phone.
I'm glad she's alive, but in the back of my mind I'm wondering when/if those remaining cells will proliferate.
