Surgery to remove gallbladder and do hysterectomy since I had tumor the size of a soccer ball on my ovary. lost 15 pounds on table lol. Did biopsies of omentum and lymph and organs that were taken out. found out cancer originated in colon and omentum tested positive too. two weeks later got port and colostomy. hard recovery but I did it, a neurologist friend didnt think I would make it after second surgery but she said I bounced right up and said when do we start chemo lol. Show what you can do if you have to. I wasnt going to give up.
