I've had a tiring day after travelling from my home to London where I am being sent for my surgery as Southend do not have the specialist needed. I got there early but then my appointment ran two hours late. I wasn't expecting my information to be sugar coated but I got told a whole range of things from you could end up disease free but I could open you up and do nothing and I might have to remove a section of the bowel which may result in a permanent stoma. That is the short version. I'm trying desperately hard to stay positive. I know PPC can return but up till now I thought the op would be less complicated.
On top of that my oncologist wrote to them as the op date they gave meant a 7 week gap from my last carbo and 5 weeks from my last taxol. They were adamant it could not be moved and would be 20th June. So with my oncologists consent I booked a holiday. Today........... third new op date - smack bang in the middle of my holiday as all now in agreement the 20th is too late. I'm hoping I can try and change the holiday.
Sorry for the rant and I am shattered but I feel sad again.
