Topic: im speechless

Hi all. Its Tues my chemo day. Im sitting her being hooked up to my fluids and my oncologist unexpectedly walks by.  She walks up with a smile on her face and said she just got back from the tumor review board and informed me today is my last day of chemo and I need to call my surgeons office, I'm having surgery!!!!! I dont have any details yet but I am speechless and in shock. So today is my last day of chemo and next step is surgery. And they told me this would probably never happen smile

Hope, love, strength...2013 and for the years to come, Porter.

Re: im speechless

Hi all thanks for the tremendous support as always.  I am scheduled for pre op consult on the 17th this month and then surgery is scheduled for the 27th.  I am coming up with a list of questions to bring to my appt on the 17th so if any of you have any questions that I could bring to the table please let me know.  My tumor is still fairly large and from what I understand surgeon is confident that she can remove all the cancer with a resection and not have to reconstruct any main veins (which they thought they might had to do).  I must admit I am scared as all get out but also blessed to get this opportunity.

Hope, love, strength...2013 and for the years to come, Porter.

Re: im speechless

Porter, I want to repeat a tip to you before I forget, I did this when I had my GIST Cancer removed. I was already on the lovely table and I asked the Anesthesiologist if I could have an epidural and he said sure you can. It doesn't really hurt and it numbs your upper body from 24 - 48 hours! It was the best thing I did. Please don't be afraid, after surgery in this time and age they really aim to keep you comfortable. Awaiting to hear all the good news!
