So I'm stage 4 diagnosed in March but things have been doing along pretty well. CEA counts took a nose dive during the first set of 6 chemo sessions, and am two weeks out of having a partial liver resection to remove one confirmed met and much smaller one found during surgery. The path report showed nothing living in the smaller met and only rare viable cells in the larger met.
So the question - I have never had surgery before let alone something this major. I went home from the hospital on the 8th day and now just at two weeks post-OP. What experiences can you all offer in terms of recovery, timeline, and what helped you?
