It's on again. This insidious disease just will not cower! New, fast growing, tumours in my peritoneum, close to where the most recent one was.
1. Oncologist says palliative chemotherapy only solution. (Don't really like that 'p' word or even the 'c' word)
2. Surgeon says he's the only one in Australia who does a 'peritonectomy' and infuses special chemotherapy directly into the abdomen while he's in there. More 'p' and 'c' words.
It involves - 12 hour op. 5 days in ICU/HDU, 30 days in hospital, 3-6 months to recover (if I make it that far).... AND...... this will give me a 30% chance of long term survival. Pre- and post-operative chemotherapy also required.
More tests to be had to determine my eligibility. What good fun!!
On a lighter note:
See the blog "following the fragrance of shooting stars" to see the next amazing adventure my friend, Wilna, is about to embark on. Hospital bed or that truck??? Hmmmmm
Feeling OK physically. Emotionally...well.....................
there will be more when
1. I have more news and
2. I feel up to it
Please get the towels and water and buckets ready for the next round. Ding. Ding
