As far as pain, NONE. ZERO. NADDA.
Do I feel like I have Cancer raging thru my body, NO.
1. I have a big mother of a tumor in my left abdomen (15cm X 11cm).
This is the biggest concern. It's what Dr. Gizzie found.
Next Friday, 8/12, Dr. Kim will perform a laparoscopic biopsy to take out a big "chunk"
for pathology to look at.
He will install my chemotherapy port as well. TWO (procedures) FOR ONE (anesthesia)! I love it!
I've named this tumor "Big Bertha".
And I named her because it is easier to express my feelings about something with a name.
BIG BERTHA HAS GOT TO GO.
End of story.
2. PetScan is scheduled for Wednesday, 8/10.
This will establish a baseline for everywhere in my body that there is active disease.
From the CT Scan, it's in my abdomen (both sides), pelvis, back, and liver.
3. Next appointment with Dr. Kritz is Wednesday, 8/17.
I assume this is when I'll find out staging, type, and treatment plan.
I've totally got this...
