Update from st. Micheal's Bristol

Hiya ladies !,

Can not believe I am writing this post at 11pm from my hospital bed!! The operation was successful and the gyno said that I am NED!!!!! I am truly amazed by this , ( on Morphine so may be spaced out enough to have imagined it !!!! ) ... was in theatre for 6 hours !!!!

Very little pain , uncomfortable but I don't give a damn !!

I cuddled the surgeon when she told me !

I'll update tomorrow ...

Lots of spaced out love ๐Ÿ‘€๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŒก๐Ÿ’‰๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿ’Š

  • Amazing news, good look with your recovery. And listen to your body, lots of rest. Wishing you well and sending hugs. Xx

  • Well done! Just wanted to say hello- I was also operated on at St Michael's back in 2013! Still go in for check ups. Think we may have the same surgeon.

    Best of luck with your recovery-hope all goes well!


  • Hi Claire...

    My surgeon is called Jo Bailey... right now I could marry her !!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜˜xxxx

  • Hi- yes, same surgeon! I was a difficult case and she was amazing.

    Hope you're feeling ok and the recovery is going well.


  • Hiya !

    Thankyou for the reply.. mine was difficult too.. painful night last night, Stoma bag decided to leak all over the bed, obviously when I was having a blood transfusion to make it more difficult to change my bed ... can kind of see the humorous side this morning!

    Heartburn from hell also this morning.. keep reminding myself of my wonderful results!

    Much love โค๏ธ Jackie xxx

  • Never thought it could happen to me.... how are you doing ??? Thankyou for your kind words!!!! Can't sleep at all despite the fact that am soooooo tired ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ดxxxx

  • Well believe it because it is!!! Don't worry you will sleep once you are over the initial elation.

    Not so good for me at moment, had another reaction to 2nd carbon treatment today. So they abandoned chemo.

    Going in Thursday to be re challenged while my own consultant is on site.

    Just read, please don't feel the need to reply today.

    Did you have optimal debulking despite evidence of no evident disease?

  • Hiya Jess,

    You'll be fine Jess, I know ๐ŸŽ‰... I underwent 3 chem sessions , commencing in September, then a scan to see if debulking would be an option.. The tumours had shrunk however some cancer still remained.. I believe I will still have the 3 0ther planned chemo sessions ... aw Jess let me know how it turns out .. there's always something don't worry ! โ™ฅ๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰Xxx

  • What wonderful news! Congratulations to you.. now get some rest after such major surgery. All the best with your recovery Love Michelle x

  • Fab Fab News and so glad you felt OK enough to write it just after your Op too!! And it all was spelled correctly, and no weird words so you must have been concentrating hard under the Morphine influence!!!!
