Surgery is done

Nov 22, 2016 3:28 PM

So my surgery went well. Doctor says it was very complicated but she was able to do it by robotics which is the best way as far as healing time. Last night was a rough night pain levels was high and had a bad reaction to the meds. But the Dr came in and found a good combination that could help me best. I'm on heavy restrictions for the next month .
When she got in she found that my 15 clustered tumors had grown together into one super tumor. My left overy had fused to the tumor so it had to go. Uterus was there times the Normal size. The tumor was compressing my y bladder and my rectum as well as lodged in my pelvis on one side. It's to early to tell what if any damage was done to the nerves and I'll have to do more physical therapy. But at this point I'm on the right road to getting better.

I'm soo happy that the doctor was able to do it all with the robotics and that she was able to get 8t all out.
Unfortunately now it's a waiting game to see if there's any further damage caused by the pressure of the tumours and for you to heal.
You need to take care of you and try not to worry about what other people think or what they want from you. You just make sure you follow the doctors advice and don't do anything that will cause you further pain or set your recovery back.

New, I am so relieved to hear that everything went well and that she was able to get rid of that nasty tumor! I am sorry to hear about the loss of your ovaries, but please take it easy and follow the doctor's orders to a T! Concentrate on you for awhile until the doctor releases you! Don't do what I did and try and rush the process because it will only make things worse. Praying for you and your family my friend! Sending love, supportive Hug's and lot's of Prayer's and sunshine your way! 😘💖🙏🌈🎉🎉

You guys are great..I appreciate all the support I get here. Yes, the report from the doctor still has me blown away. But I'm glad I made it. And now yes I'm gonna focus on me and it me. Of course not being able to use my ab muscles help me in that. Lol...
