It’s official. Today, I’m a cancer survivor.
We got the pathology results from my stomach. Now remember, after getting negative results from all pre-screening tests, this is what they found:
At least 6 different areas of the stomach that already had cancer growing and a few areas that had pre-cancer cells starting to grow . In all there were too many cancer cells to report so they just said, “multifocal intramusal adenocarcinoma”. I literally felt like a ticking time bomb reading the pathology report.
Here’s the even better news: All of the cancer was contained in those areas, none were found in my 18 lymph notes, no cancer present in my esophagus or my small intestines.
So by doing this surgery, as our doctors and pathology results indicate, I’m officially cured of cancer.
Was it all worth it? Absolutely. So today, I’m wearing purple.
