Well Im home now after my complete hysterectomy and omentum removal, the surgeon said it was a difficult op but it went better than he expected it to, the bowel was unaffected so I didnt wake up with a stoma bag wooo hooo. He said he 'ran his hand round my liver' but it felt smooth so seems that theres no cancer there, but that there are 'plugs' of cancer behind my liver. What these plugs are attached to I dont know but I knew before the surgery that there was a bit here that the surgery couldnt remove, I need to speak to the consultant when I see him on the 12th April to find out exactly what this means. Im waiting for a referral to the Marsden for more chemo so Im hopeful that whatever chemo I go on will get rid of whats left in me.
I was doing well after the op and on day 4 started being violently sick, they put me on 3 types of IV antibiotic and these made me violently sick too, I was in there for 9 days, went to 49kg in weight and was so sick for a few days. I had 2 units of blood and 2 huge bags of potassium, and was constantly on a drip for fluids and paracetomol, it was a miserable time I have never felt to ill, I couldnt even really talk to my parents when they came to see me I was so weak. My wound had a bleed so I was trying to hold my stomach whilst retching, it was truly horrible.
ANyway, the worst is over, Im home now being looked after by my Mum, and apart from walking about a bit slowly Im doing well. Oh, when I had my clips out there was one that got stuck and eventually had to have a dr put a local in there to get it out. Thankyou to Isadora for being a huge support whilst I was in hospital and afterwards xx
Now, lets just hope they can give me a kick ass drug to blow the rest of this away.
