Well I made it thru the second craniotomy with tumor disection in 4 months. I am home now, my head hurts, i am tired and weak. The follow up MRI was "inconclusive" and I am waiting for pathology reports. There is still some hope that the problems I experienced were from post craniotomy changes. But since doctors like to assume the worst and work up from there we are planning our next attack..whole brain radiation. Anyone been thru this..input?
The rest of me still looks good. Doctors are still optimistic I can achieve "disease free survival" I am hoping that this is cancer's third time at bat and I have struck it out. It keeps getting harder to get back up.
I should be preparing Thanksgiving dinner for my family not lying bed, and with Christmas right around the corner i just don't know how I am going to do it. My kids are still so young..this should be the best time of the year for them. I hate this..I hate being sick, i hate being helpless. I wish it would just go away and never come back.
I am sorry..I guess I am having a down day..too much time to lay around and think about things but when i try to get moving i get dizzy and tired and need to lye down again.
I see the docs on the 28th--let's hope for good answers
Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving
