It's been a couple weeks since I've posted. Most of you that read this already know that I had my surgery on the 18th and I'm waiting for an appointment to have a new CT scan and see what if anything is left in my liver and how successful the surgery was. I'm still in a bit of pain, more of a discomfort where the drain was, but other than that I seem to be healing nicely.
The worst thing is the depression. I have been fighting it all week, as has my husband. I finally decided I needed help and called my onc yesterday to have him give me anti-depressants even though it's not as bad as it was the beginning of the week. I'm still having trouble getting excited over the grandkids coming in two weeks and I've been looking forward to that for months. I just don't want to do anything. I guess though I've been lucky I haven't been depressed before this.
I'll update you all when I get an appointment for the CT scan. He wanted to see me within 4 weeks and it's been almost 2 already.
Thank you all for your prayers and cards. They help a lot. I don't think I could get through this without them.

Hey! Better news than last week! I have a new liver surgeon. He is young and up to date an aggressive. I am having liver surgery on May 20. Woohoo! Finally a plan of action. Actually it is liver ablation meaning he will stick a probe in each of my liver tumors and microwave them. He's going to nuke my tumors! I will have to stay in the hospital overnight. I really liked this new surgeon. I'll let you know how it goes.
