Good news

I hope this is okay to post. I like happy messages because I think that could be me. I like messages about a new challenge because they inspire me to be brave and positive with all that is thrown at us a d that could be me.

I have PPC and had 5 hours of surgery yesterday. Two weeks ago in clinic I was told terrible possibilities and you lovely lot supported me. Well....I have had all cancer removed and no loss of spleen as warned and no stoma fitted. I do want to shout it from the bloody rooftops. It's 4am. I can't sleep because of the tubes down my throat irritating my chemo throat side effects but hey! I don't mind.

Thank you all so so much for good advice, support and good luck messages.

  • Hi Tracey, such news give a positive feel to this site and hopefully we can see more such. First of all heartiest congratulations to you especially , your onco and chemo team, your surgery team(very important), your care givers and again most importantly your family and friends. Fighting the Big C is always a team effort.

    The pangs of surgery will soon disappear with time about two weeks.

    My wife was also diagnosed PPC,grade 2 stage 3C. Today after debulking with hipec and six chemos later (IV as well as intra peritoneal), she now awaits her Pet CT scan around 20th of this month. Fingers and toes are crossed. Her CA 125 which was 750 at the time of diagnosis in Dec '15 is down to 20.

    Once again, we hope to see such good news coming fast and furious.



  • Thats wonderful. I hope x he feels well. The medical staff (truly angels without wings) my amazing family and friends and this site have got me through it. Two more cycles of chemo to do and then a nice holiday to plan.

    Thank you for your kind offer words.

    Careful you don't do too much once they let you get up. For the moment it's vital to do as you're told!

    Wishing you a great recovery from the surgery. We do have a lot to thank our medical team for eh?
