You know what that means? Everyone, say it together 'Bring on the Happy Dancing Man!'

Remember, the pain from surgery is to remind you not to do too much too soon. Saying that, be sure to walk your butt off, as that is the best exercise out there. 

Are you going to be able to skip chemo and radiation? Do you Doctor's have a plan to treat you or just watch you? 

Don't be a stranger here. Your success is our motivation. 

Blessings!

That is great. Don't want to crumble your joy.  You deserve it, but hope they have done scans.    

After my colon surgery,  I was told just in the lymph nodes until they did a pet scan and then...there they are, 3 mets. 

 

I hate telling you this but please ask for a scan if you haven't had one. Mine were done weeks after surgery when I was set up with an oncologist. 

Prayers that all is good.
