    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    When I was told I was not feeling really sick, yes I had emergency surgery, but I thought It was Just for a perferated bowel. I thought I had bowel problems. And low-and -behold it was lymphoma in my bowel. What a shock! When the doctor told me when I was alone. When they left me, I sat their for a moment and said," I got Cancer, Now what do I do?" I called my Husband and told him to come in soon, and called my kids and asked them to come in soon. They all got their within 30 mins. and I told them. they where blown away. Right before they got their I Prayed to GOD, "LORD I PUT THIS IN YOUR HANDS." And I felt releaved. When I get sad I repeat this, again and again. Then I feel that releave again.

    Implant chemotherapy port

    Procedure or Surgery

    I went into the hospital on Jan. 25, 2012. to get my port. They came in to tell me the process and showed me the port. The first thing I thought Man that is Big, That is going in my chest!! I will have a 3rd boob. When it was done. I didn't have a 3rd boob. Just very black-and blue, and sore. That night it was very sore I had to use drugs. and benadryl I got a rash. They thought from the drapes, but geuss what the rash was worse. the next day I got short of breath and had to got the ER. got two I.v.s they wouldn't use my port. Got i.v. benadryl and sent home. A couple of days later the port feels better.
