I have never been more thankful for having extra weight on me; ten days after surgery they weighed me and I had only lost ONE pound. I was on TPN and fluids.... And then I had to relearn how to eat, had the throwing up days... I weighed myself today and in the past two weeks i have lost TWENTY TWO pounds.
I kept wondering why i looked so odd to myself, and now I know. Hopefully trying to force feed myself and the imodium will help! Fresh vegetables are definitely not staying in, bus soups, and pasta... And this mornings croissant all have done okay.
Another thing dr.T gave me, bless him, was a prescription for hormone replacement therapy. With all the bits gone now my emotions were haywire...sudden menopause is not fun, so hopefully this will balance it out.
Day by day a little more alert, a little stronger. Still afraid to believe that ite actuqlly gone... The horrible goo apparently took bits of my liver too. I knew I felt it up there gnawing! For now dr.T will coordinate the follow up chemo with dr. j... Probably in September, as my body has to have recovered from the MOAS first.
Trying to plan ahead a little now...promised Aiden I would make a kid's book with him, and I want to make one about PMP for kids to understand a little of what parents go through, bu I have to research a bit. I am looking forward to finishing up chemo this year and leaving it behind....!
