Cancer: Uterine Message Board


Cancer: Uterine Board Index


Hi Santee,

Well I survived the out-patient surgery on Thursday. And without getting the intestines or bladder injured. Whew. I was a bit groggy, but I remember the doctor telling me she removed the ovary with the cyst and the fallopian tube and they looked very benign. That was good news. She said I had a fibroid in the uterus. That morning she had decided to do a D&C and just scrape everything out of the uterus and send it in for biopsy. I haven't heard back on those results yet.

Those surgical centers are so wonderful and you get excellent care. However, for things like this were there are incision(s) in the abdomen, it's not so great to have to get up and go home so soon after you wake up. I bled all over my clothes. Plus, the power went out (thankfully AFTER my surgery), and I had to walk down a flight of stairs to leave (and I had 3 incisions that were oozing). But I'm healing up better each day. Thank you so much for your prayers and thoughts -- they helped!!!

Are you having a little warmer weather now? I hope that snow melts a bit so you can get to your appointment on the 4th. Your husband sounds a bit like my grandfather who was also a farmer. He was like that with the animals, too. Yes, showing a little care now and then for their wife wouldn't kill them. Lord knows they want it when they are sick. I did try finding a guy who was caring and had feelings and I ended up spending 2 years with closeted gay guy. Now I don't trust any of them. I don't want someone cold but as soon as I see some sensitivity, I'm suspicious that he's gay and I don't want to go through that again. I think I'm happier just being with the animals. :)

Interesting about the stem cell ad in the doctor's office. Yes, why is it there if he feels so negatively about it? When you mentioned that ad, I think I remembered seeing one in another doctor's office recently. I don't remember which but I will be more aware in the waiting rooms next time.

LOL! about mammograms and the no-deodorant thing! I really think these heat imagining tests will replace all these cancer detectors (which give off radiation). You can get them, but you have to pay for them yourself. Cancer gives off heat, and they can detect cancer as small as a grain of sand, they say. However, the insurance companies will not accept a diagnosis from the heat imaging tests so if your breast shows a heat area, you will have to ask for a mammogram -- The mammo may not show the cancer yet and you have to wait until it does. Unless you can get the insurance to cover an MRI. This part is such a political game with people's lives. But I do think that eventually the people will demand things like the heat imaging units. It does the whole body. Nothing invasive.

That is very frightening what you went through with your surgery under your arm. I'm guessing they just put you in a 'twilight' for that or they would have had the tube down your throat. That's probably why you were able to come out of it like that. That should not have been a twilight, though, as under the arm is very sensitive. WHen I had the lumpectomy, they put me in a twilight --though I remember nothing. When they removed the lymph nodes under the armpit, they put me under deeper with a tube down my throat.

I see you are ahead of me with the baking soda and maple syrup. Yik, I didn't know you cook it and it tasted so nasty. That's hard to take. I hope you can get some organic stuff soon. That's all I'll put in my body now. My friend who is into Chinese Medicine and other modalities told me that once you have cancer, EVERYTHING going into your body should be organic from then on. But in my Veg Times magazine, they did have a list of some foods which are 'ok' to eat non-organic because they don't need sprays because the plant itself has its own protection -- so I guess they aren't really used for these crops -- (but how can yoube sure??). Asparagus was one of them. Glad you are making your own capsules! I've done the same thing with some things.

I will also pray for you that your pet scan comes out OK on the 4th so that you can get on that plane and go to Arizona for a little bit. I think Arizona can be such a healing place. It was for me many years ago. I'll think very good thoughts for your results on Wednesday -- and hoping you won't have to wait so long for them.

Stay warm and take care, Santee aka Carolyn! I hope you are feeling ok today.

Diane
