Hi All, I haven't posted in a while, but wanted to let you all know, I had my exam under anesthesia on Aug 3rd and he took a couple biopsies. The doctor called me last Tuesday morning and said the biopsies he took on Aug 3rd showed no evidence of disease (NED)... So I am CANCER FREE!!!!!! Yippee.... hard to imagine with a tumor as big as my fist that it is all gone now.... I am sooooooooo relived.
Still trying to find my new normal as there are a couple of foods I have found that I can not eat without causing cramping and diarrhea and he did tell me my hair (that I lost 'down there' with the radiation) may never grow back. Also still trying to regain some of my upper leg muscles. But all in all I think I am doing well. I did loose 30 lbs through the process and have not put any of it back on (would not advice this way to loose weight, but I did need to loose some and need to loose a few more lbs., but will work on that slowly). Will see the Dr again in 3 mths, but won't have another thorough exam for 6 months.
And YES!!!!! I do like chocolate again, after not liking it at going through the chemo and having it wreck havoc with my taste buds.
Hugs to you all.
