Happy Groundhog Day! I have a feeling that Groundhog Day is just a North American thing – is that right? It’s a silly celebration, but I’m very fond of marmots and am always on board to give them a little recognition.
The big two-week post-surgical visit was yesterday, and it did not go at all as expected. The surgeon explained that a fairly invasive 2.5 cm endometrial cancer was found. He was shocked by the pathology results, because he’d been certain that there was no cancer. He was so certain of this that he didn’t take any lymph nodes for analysis. One thing that I really like about this doctor is that he always explains various treatment options including “do nothing,” so I always feel as if I’m in control. I decided on the most aggressive approach, which means having a second surgery to remove some lymph nodes for analysis. At least that can be done as an outpatient laparoscopic procedure. Depending on the results, I’ll most likely follow with some combination of chemo and radiation therapy. He also encouraged me to take another month off from work. So I’m trying to adjust to all of this news. I did have a good, long chat with the boss and am feeling more supported by him. Oh, and the doc also gave me the clear to begin exercising again, so I’m happy about that.
