I had my laparoscopic surgery yesterday. We got up at 3am...left the house at 3:30am... Got to Baltimore around 5:30am. I had to be there by 6am. We waited and waited...they did not start the surgery until about 11:30am. All went well. The doctor said NED! He did do an ultrasound?? On my liver...it looked good. He did remove a cyst from one of my ovaries and told my husband that it came back good. I was still in recovery when the Dr talked to my husband and when I was able to talk...the dr was already on the middle of another operation. The only disappointing thing I was that the Dr did not find the source of the pain that I have been having since February. He told my husband that it could possibly be the kidney...but that nothing showed up on the previous scan. i will ask more about it when we go for the follow-up visit.
so here is the plan as far as I know it... Follow-up visit in about 2 weeks. Go back for bloodwork in 3 months...to monitor CEA and other markers. Then scan in 6months... Pet/ct again....and check markeryear we might do another laparoscopic in a year...depending on how the scans and bloodwork look. But for now...everything looks good. I am patina little pain today...taking Oxy...so feel a bit loopy and nausea in waves. But this will soon pass.
I hope everyone else is having a good day today.
