Over the last year, I have faced the life-threatening diagnosis of Peritoneal Carcinometosis Stage 4.
For me, the hardest part has been the chemo treatments and the constant uncertainty of the chemo wiping out the cancer from my body forever. This will leave you exhausted with the desperation for a definitive word from your doctor about other options that will allow you to hope for a life that will be cancer free. This leads me to my good news. (I AM ONLY LOOKING FOR THE POSITIVE.)
After completing my second round of chemo, I qualify for the "Shake and Bake" surgery or the medical term is Cyto-Reduction/Hipec. This surgery will be intense and may require me to remain in the hospital a week to a month. Hopefully, a week will be enough. Dr.Lamont, Oncologist/Surgeon , Baylor University Hospital, will perform the surgery 31 May 2017 at 8 AM.
A Caring Bridge Account has been set up for me and Gloria, Larry. Martha or Patricia will update the account with any news concerning the surgery and any additional information provided per the doctor and the hospital staff. This way all of you will receive the information at the same time.
My hope springs up and I am wiling to move forward with the courage that this surgery will lead me into remission.
