I am happy to announce.....

I AM CANCER FREE!!!!!!

I went to see my OB oncologist today and had my staples removed. I have streri-strips all along the incision line and they will fall off themselves. It was also determined through the biopsy that the cancer was contained to the mass. I am completely over joyed!!!

WOO HOO!!!!!!

My case is going before a panel of other oncologists for discussion this coming Tuesday. My doctor is on the fence about giving me a preventative chemo dose because the mass was so very large. I'm rather glad that he is seeking objective opinions from his peers about this.

I will be monitored closely for the next 2 years to track my progress. My next appointment is in 2 months, unless it is decided I should have a dose of chemo.

Jeff hasn't stopped smiling :)

I'm dancing in my head. My back is really sore and I have been using a heating pad to relieve the pain. I spoke to the doctor about it and it seems that since my back isn't compensating for the added weight anymore it is trying to adjust to the sudden change. It will go away in time.

I also inquired about me returning to my part time job. My boss is very happy when I told her I will be back to work next weekend. It's the sit down weekend position I have had when I was in school. I can't pursue a job in the field I was trained in for another 2 months... I am not physically able to do it yet.

So that's where I'm at right now. Cancer free and still on the mend.

I am one of the happiest women in the world right now. With the grace of God and all the love and support from family and friends, I made it through.

Thank yous all.

Love yous and God Bless!!!

  1. Awesome story...Please consider coming down to Optimum Health Institute...I do NOT work for them and they are a non-profit organization that charge very LITTLE to stay.

  2. I would except I have no medical insurance and went through the DOH here in my community. They also have a program (if eligible, and I was) where different kinds of specialist physicians donate their time and talents to people free of charge. My doctor used to head up the OBGYN Oncology Dept at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa FL. I am very fortunate to have this all done for me. And since I'm still not working or have any type of income other than my loving boyfriend supporting me (and I'm in any condition to travel) going there is quite impossible at this moment :(
