Post Surgery Blues

Thursday, May 10, 2018

I became seriously unwell with a tumour 4 years ago, it was benign so I left it not realising that due to it's position it was actually killing me! My mum was terminally ill so I wanted to help her through the cancer so left mine. The Dr said it was benign so I thought it was ok.

Mum has been gone a year now and I had my surgery to remove the offender a week ago, but it failed. They took 8 'seedlng' tumours but couldn't get the 'mother' so I still have the offender. I'm still unwell, I had an allergic reaction during surgery and was quite unwell. I spent the first 5 days with a swollen face, neck and lip so felt so sorry for myself and then I thought about how positive my life was in all other aspects and decided to 'suck it up buttercup'.

Today is day 9 post op and although I am still unwell I am so grateful for the operation, even if it failed I still had the chance to have it thanks to a wonderful surgeon who took the chance to give me back my life. I am back at work and I've lost 8lbs in a week (good ole nausea!).

I'm not sure if there is a plan B although I refuse to think of it as a plan B and choose to see it as the 'ultimate cure'. I use the law of attraction daily and am so very grateful for the life I have, there are so many others suffering more than I am and I WILL get well (even if it kills me!)

Roll on stage 2 :-)
