Hey everyone, Happy New Year!
I recently got test results back from my 9 months after my resection and 3 months since my ileostomy reversal. The good news is after an MRI and a CT scan there is no evidenceof any cancer in my liver or colon. I have pretty much gotten back to normal and feel beyond lucky and gratefull. I missed the entire year of 2013 down with stage 4 and chemo and surgery after surgery. I was really looking forward to showing off my scars on the beach this summer, I mean REALLY LOOKING FORWARD to it... Newyears eve I went home with a fever and chills all night. The CT scan I just had shows a tiny pinhole leak from where the surgeon connected my plumbing back together, so it looks like I'm headed back in for another ileostomy. I'm feeling pretty down right now but also glad the cancer is not my problem currently. I feel like I had my house destryed in a tornado and lived in the crappiest apartment you can imagine in the worst neighborhood while my new house was being rebuilt, and I JUST moved back in to my wonderfull new house with my family and BLAMMO! Another tornado ripped right through the middle of the livingroom.
I know I'm still lucky, but I'm having trouble feeling gratefull right now and I'm just venting because I can dammit!
