Not so good…

Operation #2 in June 2010 after 6 rounds of chemotherapy.  Removal of 70% of my liver and my gallbladder went along with it.  I didn’t handle the morphine very well, my incision split open with delayed healing, I developed an internal hematoma (collection of fluid) near my kidney area that was extremely painful but it went away after a couple of weeks so they didn’t have to asperate it by inserting a drainage tube into my abdomen.  I still have some issues today from this operation as far as abdominal strength, but I don’t regret having the surgery to get rid of more cancer and buy myself some time.  This incision is also huge and travels horizontly in an upside down V across my abdomen.  At this time I still have the colostomy and hoping for better days and better health so I can have it reversed.  I am scheduled to finish up the remaining 6 rounds of chemotherapy once my incision heals.  Oh joy.  Now with both of my incisions my tummy looks like  a road map.  A big arrow pointing upwards.  I call it my highway to heaven.
