I'm sure at some point on this forum during my latest tumor growing in my colon I wrote about the emense amount of pain I was having. Here I am a week and a day post surgery and I can remember having the pain, but not about how bad it was.
I am happy to say the surgery took the pain away, only get an occasional "stitch" (like after running a mile as fast as you can feeling) in my side now. I am still in disbelief that they didn't want to do the surgery and give me the relief from the pain, but am thankful that in the end they did.
I am back to eating whatever I want with no ill side affects (although I now have to go to the bathroom about an 1/2 hour or so after eating) I had been dreading far worse after reading things on the WWW, I should have just asked you guys about it first rather then worry about the "what will happen" things I read on the websites which were telling me I wouldn't be able to eat this or that, etc. I grilled steak, steamed green beans and ate fresh tomatoes from out of my garden yesterday with no problems.
I must say I asked to have my weight taken the day before I left the hospital, they had me on a partial liquid diet, I was grumbling after being weighed. I mean who goes to the hospital, loses body parts and discovers that once again they didn't lose a pound? Only me I guess. After my liver surgery in May before I left the hospital I had discovered I gained two pounds, what the heck!?!?!
Just want to thank you all for the tremendous amount of caring and help you were to me during my most painful time in my journey with this cancer. I appreciate you all!!
