It's now 1 week since an uneventful surgery to remove my thyroid, which was so enlarged that I was to have it all out last fall, but that was prior to the colon cancer diagnosis. Things went very well, with just a little scare with a nodule the surgeon found and sent out for immediate frozen sample biopsy during the operation, which thankfully came back negative!!! Main side effect is supposed to be fatigue...but I don't think it can compare to the fatigue of chemo. This feels like a day at the beach (with plenty of sunscreen, of course). My body sure is looking like a road map with a new scar, but it's a small price to pay for continued good health.
We leave for a much needed vacation next week, on the most peaceful lake in Maine. I can't wait, much to reflect on and be thankful for.
Regards to all, Judy
