Well last Fri. I felt alittle discouraged after talking with my radiation doctor. He confirmed what my colon doctor said...no more radiation & APR w/ostomy is my only hope for possibly getting rid of recurrent cancer. And for best quality of life.
Less then an hour later IU Goshen Hospital called to set an appt. for my 2nd opinion. They got my records from previous & current cancer tests, treatments, etc. I know they wouldn't have set an appointment if they felt the same as my current doctors...surgery being the only option. So I am feeling (somewhat) better, that there is finally some hope for different treatment & cure this cancer!
So until my appt. on Wed. Sept. 14th, I'm sure I'll continue this 'roller coaster of emotions' along with sleepless nights. While I know this is in God's hands, I'm still alittle scared. I have an amazing support team with my hubby, our kids, family & friends.
And I do appriciate having all of you on this board to 'vent' with, ask questions of.... read your topics or questions...because knowing I'm not alone with this rare cancer helps so much. Thank you & God bless each of you.
