Hi Everyone. I put a post out on the discussion board a few weeks ago. Regarding diets. I joined the discussion board about a month ago. Even though I dont add very many comments I do read quite a few of the posts put out. I cant say how much this forum means.
I will see a liver surgeon in early December to schedule a liver resection to remove my right lobe. You would think with me already having two major surgeries this year, I would not be nervous about this next up coming surgery. I should be a pro by now.
I was curious those that have had a liver resection could post and let me know how their recovery went. At this time I am not sure if the resection will be done laporoscopy or if they will have to cut me open more. My kidney surgery left about a 12 inch scar on my left side. I can tell you it wasnt easy getting out of bed on that one. But I forced myself and I of course bounced back much quicker. It was hard, but I knew I had to do it.
I would appreciate any response back. And again, I cant say how much this site and the folks on it mean to me in staying positive and beating this.
