Hi, I had a very large fibroid tumor that my Dr. was sure wasn't cancer. WELL guess what, the pathologist found cancer cells, Leiomyosarcoma.
I'm going in for my 2nd surgery tomorrow, it's only been 6 weeks since the first.
They see something in my CT Scan that they can't identify. They want to remove my cervix and lymph nodes while in there and they're going to put a mesh over my small bowels to protect them from the radiation I will have 4 weeks after surgery.
It was a shock to find out I had cancer. While in surgery they did a some frozen sections and all of them were benign. I just got home from the hospital and my Dr. called with the news from the pathologist.
Needless to say I am not happy about having to have this 2nd surgery, so major and so long to recover. I am just feeling like normal again this week and I have to start all over again! I feel so helpless with this situation and wondering what's next. I am trying hard to take it one day at a time so it's not so overwhelming but those little negative thoughts keep popping up. If anyone can give me some encouragement or suggestions on stopping those negative thoughts I'd really appreciate it! I'm leaving early in the morning for surgery 2 hours away and I would really appreciate prayers from any of you.
Thanks & God Bless,
