    Decision Point

    still have not healed from the surgery in october 2011 this is 8 months later have done the wound vac, have done the hyperbaric chamber.. now they say surgery again to remove all the dead tissue from the extensive radiation.. say it will take about 2-3 months of bed rest w the wound vac to heal (hopefully it will be successful) or I can just live like this... Not very good choices to choose from....... I wish i had never done the first surgery or any treatment............Unsure what i will do..... And there is still cancer inside me that they cant remove......After all this I still have the demon in me.........
