I feel somewhat guilty about posting good news, but I know from reading your posts here that any light is embraced by you all. I am so relieved to tell you that my PET scan came back clear - no sign of disease anywhere else in my body.
I am scheduled to have a radical hysterectomy on the 5th of December, they plan to leave my ovaries and they plan to do t with keyhole surgery. They will remove the lymph nodes and have them checked out, they are confident that there has been no spread (I know there are issues as a result of having them removed).
They have also tentatively told me that they don't even feel radiation is needed. They do have to remove the entire area (can't recall the name) where the tumour is embedded and the surgery has certain risks (bladder/bowle/nerves and so on) and that depending on how the surgery goes, that there is a risk that it could lead to open surgery - that's ok by me though.
My house is soooooo much lighter that I fear a gust of wind will blow it away. I feel very lucky and want to thank you all for you kind words and prayers, trust me they are being repaid as we speak.
I know I am still on the journey - and how far I have come in such a short time. From diagnosis to removal it will be 10 weeks (can't get my head around that one), 10 short weeks and such a journey - wow.
Thank you all and here's to the next leg.
