Topic: 8 more days till our first scan...my stomach is in knots..
Hello to all!
My husband Dave (age 51) had a successful resection April 2nd, having 80% of his liver removed along with 30 lymph nodes (2 being cancerous). He has experienced so many complications since then, being 2 bowel obstructions, an infection, having an open wound, and his central line also became infected. He was malnurished and did not eat for 4 weeks, only TPN. Today, he is doing great, his wound is almost healed, and he is eating 3 meals a day. My concern is his lower back is acheing more often. We go for our first scan since the surgery, June 19th, and my stomach is just doing flip flops, the closer it gets to the scan, I am so scared. I am trying so hard to have faith, and keep my thoughts positive, but sometimes, I just look at him, and I want to cry. He is so thin (but is gaining), and some days, his mind seems to be somewhere else, and I am sure it is like mine, thinking of the scan. Please keep our famiy in your prayers. Keeping positive thoughts until June 19th!
