On March 29, 2005, I underwent surgery for the removal of a cancerous ovarian cyst, both ovaries, both tubes,and two lymph nodes. After the operation, my surgeon told me that the cancer had spread to other sites: the liver and the colon... That I would require chemotherapy....She later discussed my case with my GP and Gastroentologist to determine the probable origin of my cancer. A follow-up colonoscopy showed a cancerous tumor in the large colon. I am now scheduled for surgery to remove it on May 25th. Thankfully, my oncologist ordered a PET Scan to see if and where the cancer had spread to other areas of my body...Well, I got the results yesterday and the PET Scan showed that the cancer had not spread.... This was great news for me since I had been dreading this second operation. Now, I am looking forward to it! Now, I can see that there will be a happy ending. Once the tumor is removed, all will be well. .... I am sharing this to express that my constant prayers have helped to overcome my tears of distress and misery.... These are expensive procedures and I do not have conventional medical insurance,yet, I will somehow overcome this too...Thank you for allowing me to lighten my heart.
