Hi, I'm new to this site and to discussion boards in general. But I am still recuperating for 10-hr surgery in Sept 2011 to remove tumors from my abdominal wall, to remove my spleen, gall bladder, sm intestine, and R colon, and a chemo bath in the same surgery. When the doctors said it would take 4-6 mos to recover, they did not exaggerate.
I have appendiceal cancer, signet cell, Stage IV, as it had metastisized to my ovaries, rectum, etc. No tumors have been found in my liver, lymph nodes, or other major organs nor in my bones.
Anyone have anything similar? This has all happened so fast, and I am just now coming to terms with how it is changing my life. I'm at the point where I am focusing on nutrition and diet, but not finding a lot of information online.
Would appreciate any help you can give. Ann
