Procedure or Surgery Associated with Adenocarcinoma, Unknown Primary. Posted on July 18, 2014 View this journey (2 Experiences)

I had surgery on June 26th to remove a well differentiated adenocarcinoma tumor imbedded in my rectis abdominal muscle. ( That is the lower stomach muscle)
I am still recovering, but feel good. The surgeon re-cut through my caesarean scar. Caesarean was 19 years ago. So it was like having another C-section. Instead of a baby, the doc removed a section of my muscle about the size of a lemon. With the tumor about the size of a plum.
I now have a mesh screen inside, covering the muscle void. It's been 23 days since the surgery. I feel pretty good. But nowhere near myself prior.
Chemo starts first week of August.
