    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    This was the worst surgery i have ever had. I had a PET scan and it showed that I had "hot spots". So i had to have a major surgery done on me. I was in the hospital for just over night so that wasnt as bad, but when i woke up from the surgery i had some pretty good news. I was cancer free!! October 26, 2012 i was offically cancer free.
