AdaW Posted July 18, 2003 Share Posted July 18, 2003 Dear Friends, I wanted to keep you updated because you may be wondering where I've been this past week. You may remember that I had 3 cancerous tumors (subcutaneous mets) removed in Pittsburgh at the end of June. We travelled back home to GA this past weekend and it was a very difficult trip. I had terrible pains in my legs and one of the surgical sites seemed infected. I was also running a fever. The pains in my legs were so intense, I cried--not usual for me. All of this began after I was released by the surgeon last Friday--so this was no one's fault. I saw the oncologist this past Monday and he immediately admitted me to the hospital here in Marietta with what he thought was an absess. I had another surgery, but they could not find any infection. I also had an MRI and they didn't find a tumor on the spine. What a week. I spent 5 days in the hospital on IV fluids and antibiotics. My leg pain is diminished but not gone entirely. I am so glad to be home. I am very tired so I am on my way to a nap, but I wanted to update you just in case you were wondering about me. I've been thinking of all of you and praying for you. It's good to be back. Ada Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
