'NED' have read so many posts using this much desired word. My liver tumor was smaller than thet thought and right lung tumors were removed. Speak to surgeon tomorrow for report and chemo plan.
I hope I can be less anxious and my mom will be of help w/her visit (she is 81 and god bless her very healthy)
These board and what all have endured sure got me thru this last period of 2 surgeries now and high anxio
ness. Glad it is spring and looking forward to summer and hope I can do a local cancer walk in May.
Blessings to you all and be well!!!

PS to remove the liver tumor they had to cut diaphram
and gives hiccups/kind of continual for about 3 min's -thank goodness I have an epidural for pain management!

Thank you for your kind words!
I know I have to keep my faith and positiveness going.
These boards help me and communicating with such supportive people like yourself.
I hope to make the walk. I need to keep events on my calendar to keep me moving forward.
I am lucky to have two surgerys so close together but the assault to the body - ugh!
Yes, summer is coming!
Thanks Minnie -I am an Illinigirl.

That is great news. NED is a great feeling. BTW i had my third liver resection this past December. They took part of my diaphragm out as well. I get hiccups more often than I did before.
