It was 4 years ago today that I had my almost 7 hour Whipple surgery and spent 6 days in the hospital. It took me almost an entire year to feel “normal” well at least my new normal. I didn’t know what was ahead of me, or even if there was any time ahead of me at all. After surgery I had 6 months of adjuvant chemotherapy. It was no picnic, but it now a blip on the radar of my past.
14 years ago on the 12th of this month I had my thyroid removed because of papillary thyroid cancer. No further treatment was needed after surgery except for follow up examinations.
19 years ago on the 22nd of this month I had my lumpectomy followed by 6 weeks of radiation for breast cancer.
December has not traditionally been a good month for my health, however, since my Whipple I have decided I would reverse this trend and be healthy and enjoy Decembers from now on
Happy holidays to everyone on here. You’ve all been such a great support for me.
