Topic: Hello everyone!
Hi guys! Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I feel like I say that a lot, sorry again. x: I just thought I would update everyone since I didn't fall off the face of the Earth!
My last two CT scans have been clean since I finished chemo in August! So I'm pretty happy so far. Next month with be a year since I had surgery to have my tumor and liver removed. It's all very surreal now. For the most part I've just been trying to get back to normal. My hair has been growing back in and my nutritionist has put me on a diet to lose the weight I gained while I was on chemo and to manage my (apparently?) diabetes. It's really hard but I'll do it!
Though bad news wise, I just found out I had two herniated discs and a disc bulge in my lower spine. My father's doctor actually let us know that chemotherapy weakens the bones so I can see why that happened now. I'm out of work because of that but I haven't stopped yet! I've decided to go into counseling psychology so I can work with cancer patients to cope with their sickness and treatment so I'm working harder than ever.
Reading lots of articles on cholangiocarcinoma, I just don't know what to expect or to look out for in the coming years. They caught my tumor in stage two so it's not the usual case. I know to be positive and all that but I want to make sure if anything comes back I can catch it early again!
I hope everyone is doing well as my thoughts and prayers have been with all of you as they always have been. <3
Once you choose hope, anything's possible!
