Thursday September 27th, 2012 ***GOOD NEWS***


I got a call this morning from Dr. Fiorica's office (the OBGYN oncologist) to come in at 2:30pm.

I got there, filled out some paperwork and had another general workup from his assistant.

The good news is I'm going to be scheduled for surgery on Monday. I have to go back to see Dr. Fiorica tomorrow so he can see me and discuss everything that will be done.

From what I understand, this thing is bigger than a basketball. It will be removed along with a total hysterectomy and the mentum covering it. He will also check lymph nodes and other places that cancer could  form. The pathology will be done after it's removed.

I will have to stay in the hospital for up to 5 days from what I know so far so that everything is okay. Peristaltic movement must be resumed correctly in my intestines before I can go home.

I'll know the "exacts" tomorrow.

But, for now..... SURGERY MONDAY!!!! :)
