Hello Grace, I love your name. My granddaughters middle name is Grace. By the “grace” of God she became a part of our family through a foreign adoption.
I’m so glad you are feeling a little better and will pray you will continue to regain strength. I met someone a couple of weeks ago that had surgery around May 14-15 who told me that her cancer was the size of a quarter. She was in the doctors office waiting for results. She told me that she kept going to a local doctor telling them something was wrong but nobody listened until it was quite large.. I left my phone number with her son but have not heard anything from her. I continue to hope she will contact me.
During my preventive surgery they opened up the original site (right behind my vagina) and removed more tissue, then made a 5 inch incision on both sides of my groin and removed lymph nodes. I had drains from each of my groin sites for 31/2 weeks. I had problems with the stitches behind my vagina so a visiting nurse and my husband have been putting packing in that wound. The nurse and doctor are very pleased with the speed of healing. My husband is very glad. He has been a good sport about acting as my packing nurse but it is getting old! Keep up the fight.
I look forward to hearing from you. Pat
