I just passed my four year cancer diagnosis. It kind of just went by without much thought until now. It’s hard to believe its been four years. I’m feeling pretty good. I have more pain from my neck than anything. It is probably time for another injection. I have been having some rib-area pain that is pretty steady. It isn’t super sharp but it’s not a dull pain either. It’s hard to know if this is from the liver surgery or something else. I was told that some people have pain forever after that type of surgery. It does come and go and is definitely worse when I sit for long periods of time.
My first surgery was July 2nd, 2012. Right-hemicolectomy via laporoscopic surgery. My recovery went well and I was in the hospital for 4-5 days. I can’t remember. My second surgery was the following February and was a liver resection. They removed about ten tumors (which left me with about ten small ones). My remaining rumors have remained fairly stable since.
Next up: scan on July 20th and i meet with my Oncologist the following week to get results. He didn’t order any blood work but they’ll do the basics before i see him.
I will let you know how that goes!
