Thank you for your thoughts and prayers on my recent cancer surgery unfortunately the outcome and news is not what I desired or wanted to hear
When they went in for surgery not only did they notice that the tumor was too close to the lumbar and sacral muscles but they also saw that there was more cancer in the body than they had originally thought so all he did was take out biopsies and then close me back up
Now I travel down a different road a road of different unknowns challenges to make decisions about whether or not I do chemo again or if I do radiation or if I do nothing
This is my third cancer battle and every time I have done chemo I have handled the chemo well but the side effects have been so severe it really wears on me thus being I don't know if I really want to go through that again
I am very disheartened and very sad that they were not able to remove the tumor and that there is more cancer in my body running rampant
Many new decisions will need to be made but since I know many of you know who I am and would like to be aware of what's going on I wanted to share what happened with the surgery
For now I'm sad and very disheartened I am doing my best to process this the best I can and above all I am trying to remember that I am still alive and to be thankful for that
