I hope this is an okay way to update. I've added update #1 so I wouldn't clog up my initial post. If someone needed that information, they could go to the first post.
Now that the administrative work is done (and someone jump in if this isn't the correct way to update), I've had the initial results. Carcinoma. There's a second report that I haven't received yet which will give me more information as to whether it's liver or ovarian cancer.
I meet with the surgeon next Thursday, and then I'll see the oncologist the following Tuesday. I just hope they can do a liver resection. There's two lesions, one larger and it goes deep into the liver.
Lots to do before surgery. Freezers to fill. Things to clean! Extra safety bars installed in the bathrooms.
This time around I'll do online shopping for groceries. That way we'll have fresh food and if it takes me all day to make a salad, so be it. (Yes, friends and family would bring stuff, but it's really critical that I move. I have such poor circulation in my legs.)
I'm working on my affirmations/positive thinking and being optomistic.
And how cute is this -- when I read the short report to my husband, he digested it, and then told me to get onto the Ovacome forum. He reminded me of all the women who have survived...
You people help even when you don't realize it.
