The Pathology reports are in
Updated: Dec 21, 2021
Your cancer is measuring at 2.7cm and had only spread to one lymph node.
Your margins are clear.
Um? Ok so that's good news right, means we operated and caught what wasn't seen before. And thank god we didn't wait till the new year?
"Oh hold on a minute, this has never happened to me EVER before I am so so sorry, those are not your results. They sent 6 different patients in one email to me. Please just hold on one minute, again I am so so sorry. Let me just run out to the front desk."
"Ok back, again I'm sorry, this has never happened to me before.
You have zero cancer, nothing found in pathology."
"Hallelujah! Holy Shit! Where's the Tylenol?"
*disclaimer since I’ve been asked twice already. It made not having cancer, even better when I briefly thought I had it. Then found out I didn’t. Then realized that I definitely didn’t AND didn’t have to fight it and don’t have to worry about remission. It made the best news even better. * so extra merry Christmas
Now that that's out of the way and I've got another prescription for valium, the stress level shall decrease. The week has been up and down.
Cleared to sleep on my back in bed if I can get out of bed on my own.
Cleared to sleep on my side with some elevation.
Cleared to life a whopping 5 lbs
Don't need to keep tape on my incisions
Prescription written for physiotherapist.
First fill of 50cc put in (I see zero difference) The actual fill didn't hurt at all, just a little weird.
Next appt booked for January 4
Also cleared to walk the dog with a waist walking leash, which I'm about to search for on Amazon.
No fill, first fill, boob scar Jabba the Hutt.
oh yah also cleared to drive. At this point I’ll just be doing little drives, but FREEDOM!
hoping to get comfortable in bed over the next few nights so we can make our way to Cornwall just after Christmas
miss you mom, was glad to have Kirstin with me for my mini heart attack today.
One of our moms (or maybe Kev) was looking down on us keeping me safe, after both /all, suffered the worst fate cancer can give.
