hi all wanted to say thanks for all the kind words and prayers since i posted about my surgery. i had a tumor removed from my rectum. i was in the hospital for 8 days. the surgeon dr.khoo (who is wonderful) says he got it all. I didnt have to have a colostemy bag as i thought i would ..was even marked for one a couple of days before the surgery. no cancer has spread to my organs. and i found out i was in stage b2. not sure if i am going to have chemo or not. doc said not to worry bout that yet. will see an oncologist after my recovery. have been able to go to bathroom and no problems. so many things turned out better than i first thought. it has been rough and am glad to be home. but i have been so blessed. am still amazed. i get my staples out tomorrow am sure that will be painful but i am ready for them to say bye bye. i have 32 staples in from the top of my belly button to the top of my pubic area. thanks again for the well wishes and good thought and words. i am hanging in and feeling better all the time.. love and peace.. Ramona.. just remember in the end it will all be okay..and if its not okay then its not the end..
