Not dead yet

I got the staples taken out of my incision today.  I have to go back and see the surgeon who operated on me in a month, after I see the oncologist.  Depending on what the oncologist says, I may have to get a colonoscopy.

I'm not in near as much pain as I was but the diarrhea seems like it's going to kill me.  However Dr. Luis, the guy who did my surgery, says it's normal to have diarrhea for months after the type of operation I had.  Let's hope, for my sphincter's sake that it goes away soon and my poops are solid soon.  Either way though, I'm glad to be pooping.  And I'll be even gladder if there's no more cancer in me.

Not pleasant, but better than the alternative. Here's to no more cancer!

Hoping the best outcome for you. You have a lot of physical and mental strength on your side, and many people wishing you well.

Here's to no complications from the surgery, a clean bill of health from the oncologist, and as speedy a recovery as possible.

Well a colonoscopy will be a piece of cake after this, but I hope it's unnecessary and you can focus on looking forward (just like Obama). The fact that you are eating and pooping sounds really good. You deserve a break.
