Wow! I had to take my daughter to the doc about a tick bite ... so while I'm there, I asked him about this stupid bone resection surgery ... he grimaced terribly as soon as I mentioned it. He said it is soooooo painful! I posted a message on the bone cancer site ... didn't really get any help there .. except one person suggested I post on the lung cancer site. So I did that this morning. The more I learn, the worse it sounds. I'm not so sure I am going to go through with this one. I am calling my oncologist today to discuss this further with him .... I think I want to wait a while longer and just watch it. I talked to a mom at one of my son's ballgames last week ... she had this surgery done on her leg ... said it was the WORST thing she ever had done as far as pain ... but in the end, it relieved her of long term pain ... OMG I am sooooo not ready for this one!!! I'm feeling so great lately ... hate to ruin it with this surgery.
Ok .... just venting ... thanks for listening ... have a great day!!!!!!!
