Hello dear ladies,
My best friend had the surgery and more cancer was found than expected. Surgeon removed a 12 cm mass, on the Omentum (sp?) as well as the entire Omentum. Masses were found impeding the blood flow in her intestine and the surgeon felt it to dangerous to remove as this point. Cancer is extensive. I am living with her 24/7 to care for her through the thick and thin of this disease, doing my best to be supportive and letting her know how special she is and how much I love her. Her Chemo will start in a few weeks, on Cabo/Taxol. going for 6 cycles in order to shrink existing tumors and then go in for a second surgery after that. Please reply with any - any at all suggestions that I can help her with. i.e. what not to eat - what is best to eat, some say not to use the typical laundry detergents (Tide,etc) to wash her clothes, do not use any type of aero spray products for cleaning. At times I feel overwhelmed but my best friend of 32 yrs. is an Angel and means the world to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for responding. I know that in itself takes energy. I wish each of you Happiness, wonderful fun surprises, hearing birds chirping, and spending pain free days!
Love you all,
