dana Posted November 19, 2003 Share Posted November 19, 2003 Hi Everyone, I just want to share some great news. My dad just had a second surgery to remove left over cancer that the surgeon did not remove during the first surgery. He is doing great and is coming home today. He has had an amazing recovery. He has felt a lot more pain because he had two chest tubes but once they removed one of the tubes he was back to his old self. He looks as if he never even had surgery. We also got the pathology back and it said that there were no signs of cancer. I am still a little confused about this. Our family always gets a copy of the pathology and run it by a second opinion. The surgeon has not talked about any further preventive steps to take. My dad is 79 and they are very against chemo and radiation b/c it might be harsh on his body, but he has fought through these two surgeries like a trooper. Anyhow I just want to share the news and send love to everyone else out there. I think my dad has the most amazing faith and will to live and honestly that has helped all of us get through this. Peace and Love, Dana Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
