Complete hyst & ooph 04/08. Recovering well.
08/30 update--recovering well still, but having trouble doing more than just "working and going home and taking care of fami
[More]ly"... I can't grocery shop like I used to, can't entertain without "paying the price" the next day. I have a very difficult time traveling for work (exhausted) and rarely go out to BBQ's, movies, any fun things, because the next day I STILL feel run over by a truck, and my surgery was 4 months ago!
I think it's normal, and because I'm so obese, diabetic, neuropathic, HBP, sky hi triglycerides etc. I'm also waiting to get a C-pap machine (my co-pay is $1500).
Maybe after I'm sleeping better at night, I'll have more energy to do the things I used to!
Donna, So geat to hear from you. I am very sorry about your niece's recurrence. I will keep her in my prayers. I have had a recurrence, too. In the colon and behind the liver I have some tumor activity. I am on a different kind of chemo this time specific for the cell type of my cancer, so I hope it shrinks it for me. Yes, I have enjoyed the start of Spring. Winter seemed endles this year!! My youngest girl is having a baby in June. Oldest girl is doing okay and staying out of trouble. Miracle! Love, Marie
