2nd surgery 12 hours from now!

My teratoma regrew after the first surgery, but only to 10cm. Then it shrank and was drained after chemo caused it to be necrotic. It choked off my right ureter so now my kidney is atrophied and has a stent in the ureter. The tumor grew back grew back where my ueterus used to be and diminished my bladder capacity by som 53%. That whole mess except the bladder will be removed and the bladder repaired.

I tried to do the bowel prep, but vomited 2 liters of the golytyl. My surgeon said to swtch to magnisium citrate, and that got my blocked bowels moving again. Not clear yet and it is almost 8pm! I hope this works fast, because I am due in the surgery at 5:30am. Could you all pray for me?

  • Dear Annie!

    I can't pray for you as I do not believe but my thoughts are with you and I am projecting positive. It is stories like yours that remind me how lucky I am and should stop complaining. I hope the op is going well as I write and that you can feel my positive projections - my equivalent of prayers!

  • Annie, My prayers are with you,wishing you a speedy recovery, lots of love Sue xx

  • Oh Annie,

    You must have been so worried when you wrote this. I do hope there were people around you to love you and encourage you. It is a horrible time I am sure, but so positive that something constructive is happening. I feel sure they got you into surgery and things are going well, after all you are Annie _Fighter_.

    As soon as you are able, please update us how it went.

    In the meantime all my very best wishes for a smooth and fast recovery, and to good times ahead.

    Love Lizzie


  • Hi Annie,

    Ditto all the above, just getting ready for surgery so frighteneing, so I too hope you are in surgery now, and that they remove everything. You are a star, and should be so proud of yourself.......it needs so much determination to get as far as the bowel prep...especially as you probably had no sleep last night.

    I send you all my good,positive thoughts, for a successful operation and recovery.
