Post surgery.

Hello everybody , first of all thank you for your lovely wishes.

I’m nearly 3 weeks post op and surgery went well the surgeon got it all and even extra on my rectum and stomach I did not know about....

she is a truly amazing surgeon

I struggled with a sluggish bowel and sickness and diarrhoea due to all the meds

Bonus is I’ve lost 3 stone 👌

But nevertheless I am at mums doing well taking each day as it comes just seeing my Ellie smile perks me up.

Sorry it took so long to respond.

Love to u all

So, so glad you are doing OK! I was getting worried about you. Take your time recovering, and don't try to do too much too soon. It's almost spring time, so you will hopefully get to enjoy some warmer days in the coming weeks (after the Siberian cold snap next week!). Well done, lovely, you've come so far.

Thanks sweet I bought myself a summer dress last year that I cannot wait to wear it’s two sizes smaller, I must of known I was not that big and it was the cancer!!

She took 5 kilo of cancer 😳

I feel like I’m a new woman and cannot express how grateful I am to this surgeon

She said I have had this cancer years and years and years.... and no idea how I got pregnant.

All I know is that she is my miracle Ellie. Xx

Hi Zena,

Great to hear from you. We've all been thinking about you and sending good vibes. What a lovely miracle worker our lovely Prof.F. is! Zena, 5 kg of cancer - equivalent to a bag of potatoes!!! - and you've been carrying all that around. I am nearly 6 weeks on from the surgery - and recovery takes time; I am still struggling a little with bowels and constipation but getting there. I know you lovely mum and dad are looking after you and helping with the children, so take it gently and don't overdo your recovery. As we said in the hospital, we will have to meet up, perhaps at Bury market for a catch up In the meantime,

Best wishes. Gwen xx

Fantastic that all went well. It is amazing what surgeons can do. Sounds like a pretty enormous operation so take things slowly. When I think back, I felt a bit better every day but it was a good two years before I stopped having what I call off days and getting towards three before I could say I was 100% all the time. Yesterday celebrated 4 years cancer free in New Zealand, having walked 15 km the day before! Never thought I would do that again nor come to New Zealand again. So Zena, I really hope you go from strength to strength and enjoy your holiday and being with you lovely family. Xx
