Hi to all,
I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I know I did. Last year I had chemo induced diarrhea and was on TPN (IV fluids) for Thanklsgiving and did not have any turkey. This year I made up for it.
I was one of those crazy people who got up at 4:45 AM to go shopping yesterday and didn't get home until 10:30 PM. Of course I found every bathroom in the mall, some more than once. This made me realize even more that my colostomy surgery in Jan. will improve my quality of life.
I went to see my oncologist this week and I always ask her the chances of my cancer coming back. She said I only have a 20% of it coming back now. YIPPEE!! She also said there are new statstics theat if you remain cancer free for 3 years you are considered cured, instead of 5 years. Has anyone else heard this? I will have to ask my surgeon when I see him in 2 weeks.
