two weeks since my whipple

hello all-

I am doing very well. I got out of the hospital in a week, one week earlier than they said i would. I am feeling great and taking things one day at a time. the path report said they removed 20 lymph nodes and 14 were cancerous so thats a bit scary but Dr. Lowy thinks they got it all and I dont have to have chemo or radiation since mine is a neuroendocrine tumor. I am still confused a bit about why my cancer markers were negative but yet, i had cancer in that many lymph nodes. Thats pretty alarming. But I am continuing on my organic, vegetarian lifestyle change and hopefully will be able to boost my immune system in natural ways now that the surgery is behind me. It was rough and I still cant sleep on my side, but they took all the staples out and I am feeling much better. I am walking about five blocks a day and doing small errands now by myself so I am feeling really strong and independent! I am so grateful to be alive and so happy for everyday I have on this planet. Much love and strength to you all! xo candye
