Hi there all you brave and lovely ladies
I have just returned from Miami and the Caribbean where I had an amazing holiday with my hubby, pic attached ( excuse the windswept wet look as it’s an action shot on a jet ski!)
We decided to bring it forward as thankfully I feel completely well but unfortunately I have to have a large op on 17th November. As per my previous post a while ago I have a large cyst on my liver having finished chemo (3rd Line) on 4th July, also there is still some bits and pieces in my peritoneum and on the surface of my bowel. I need a liver resection done by a hepatobiliary surgeon and the gynae part done by a gynae surgeon. There’s a strong possibility I will wake up with a bag also which they tell me will be 98% temporary - say 6 months.
I’m so pleased we went away as I managed to almost put it out of my mind completely but now I’m back I’m all too aware it’s coming up fast. They tell me it will probably be 8 hours and I will wake up in hdu.
Not really sure why I’m posting this other than it’s fair to say I’m pretty petrified and walking in feeling fine and waking up NOT fine takes some getting my head round but I do understand it’s for my own good long term. I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to anaesthetic and always scared I won’t wake up! (Pathetic I know lol !)
I’m sure there are lots of you out there who have had big ops for this horrible disease so any words of wisdom would be great 😃
Take care brave ladies
Jo xxx 💗
