Very Good Medical News

Today is two weeks since my surgery.  At a week and a half after surgery and a week after going home (when I should have still been in the hospital according to my pre-surgery meeting with the doctors), I went back to meet with my two doctors and I received very good news.  In fact, it’s hard to imagine how the news could have been better.  Previously I was told my cancer was stage II, but when I met with my doctors this week, I was told it was stage I.  They are cautiously optimistic and think I won’t need any additional treatment.  My doctors said I was strong and agreed with me about being a fast healer. They said my incision looks good.  My blood work was good.  I have had no issues with pain, bleeding, constipation, lymphedema, or any other problems associated with this kind of abdominal surgery.  I’ve been walking every day and avoiding lifting anything. Everything now is good.  I have an appointment to come back for a check-up and tests in two months, and I think I’ll be even better then. 

Thank you for all of your concern, prayers, and good thoughts.  I do appreciate you all!
