I had a genius surgeon who pulled multiple tumors out with my ovaries and fallopian tubes (I lost uterus to cervical cancer in 1976). Well much to his surprise, I think since he had take out lymph nodes in the surgery plan, no cancer in my ovaries! Whoo hoooo!So he left those lymph nodes right where they belonged. Now I feel grateful to "just" have anal cancer. I was home the same day of surgery. Sloan Kettering rocks. Tuesday I finally meet with the oncologist and hopefully radiologist to get started on my T2N1 stage anal cancer. I will do this at Sloan in Sleepy Hollow. Since the cancer is about 3A, I think, I am right on the "cutting" edge (pardon the pun) of being treated solely with the chemo/radiation. I am really ready to get rolling. I have never felt such appreciation for my life before. That's a gift.
