After my surgery in June 2013 at UCSD, I have been recovering. I have been getting stronger, had a great year with my wife, a good gardening year, we got a newer car, and over all life is good.
I had a follow up CT/PT and then a colonoscopy in October 2013. The Surgeon told us to see my oncologist immediately. We went to see Dr. Lenz at USC. He told us all of my blood tests the biopsies from the colonoscopy were all negative, and if I was feeling good then I should be healthy! Then he asked me to take a group of tests at USC to set a new baseline for normal for me. Several trips to SoCal, many expenses later, and today was the final colonoscopy, needle biopsies, and bloood tests.
Now the waiting game..... We have the follow up appointment with Dr. Lenz on the 20th Feb to find out if I am healthy, or if somehting was really there. I feel good, but there is always that little voice in our heads, is everything alright?
We are sure everything is fine. I feel strong, and feel healthy. It is just there is always that little fear.
Best Always, mike
PS Keep fighting the good fight!
