Maggie2~ recovery is going well. I'm 5 weeks out now and really happy with the results. Very little pain after the first post-op day. Will have a little tweaking done next year, lipo & fat grafting to fill in and plump up just a bit. But I already am much happier with these boobs than the tissue expanders.

I jokingly (well, sort of) told my plastic surgeon I'm going to write on my boobs "do not touch" before this pancreas surgery. LOL

LiMa, it's good that you're having a relatively easy recovery from the DIEP.  It will make having another surgery a bit easier.  My partial nephrectomy was a robotic laprascopic.  Will yours be a full abdominal incision?

Maggie2- this surgery wil be open so that means another sizeable incision, vertical and about 5 inches. If this keeps going I may end up being able to play tic-tac-toe on my belly. Seriously though, I'm not happy with another big incision but it is what it is.

Yes. I was diagnosed with IDC on 9/13/18. My oncologist sent me for testing to see if it had spread anywhere. My PET/CT came back with a suspicious spot on my liver that they thought would be metastatic breast cancer, but it turned out to be cholangiocarcinoma, a rare bile duct cancer. Got the tentative diagnosis for that on 9/28/18, confirmed with liver resection surgery on 2/14/19 after 11 doses of chemo (gemzar & cisplatin) for that cancer. Then had bilateral mastectomy on 4/24/19. Now doing chemo targeted for the breast cancer.

Jenn4cats, I'm sorry you keep having to go through this crap. Sending you a hug and healing thoughts.

I'd forgotten about this thread. Too much anesthesia last year and my brain is shot. My update is the final pathology on my kidney cancer was 7 cm, larger than I thought, so JUST barely Stage 1. But it was unclassified, which one of the rare types, and an automatic grade 4. Ick. And I've also got an aortic aneurysm, wheee! Guess they can duke it out on which one will get me first.

Jen, I am so sorry you are having to deal with all of this. I found my second cancer right after my lumpectomy and before my mastectomy. They found all sorts of funny things when I went for scans before the Hysto. They had to remove my thyroid since the biopsy was unclear. So far they all are stable.My bladder has stayed looking good, and I have a colonoscopy tomorrow. My endocrinologist said that she would not be surprised if I had more cancers. She said she is positive that I have a genetic mutation that they have not yet identified.


Alice, sorry your kidney news was not better. My stepmother's family all have aneurysms, some of the sisters have had surgery, other are ignoring it. One had a problem at age 30, all the other 6 lived into their late 90's. I hope that is the case for you! What is the treatment for kidney CA? MY friend was just diagnosed and had surgery a few weeks ago. She has not returned my texts, so I figure it might not be good news.

Hang in there everyone. We can make it through this!!!! Sending lots of healing energy to both of you!

It may be worth to find out if anyone is doing any kind of research on your type. One of the best things you can do to boost your immune response is to exercise. You may want to join us on the exercise group thread. There are a lot of killer athletes over there, and then a lot of us "regular" people trying to help our bodies stay alive!LOL

BTW, my colonscopy went great, no polyps etc! YAY!!

Alice, I hear you about the joint issues!

I am a PT, so I need to keep working. I obviously have a bias toward exercise, but if I can't lift people, I cannot work. I am in a pedicatric setting, so its usually up to about 75pounds. I just do what I can do everyday, and I try to do more than I have done the day/week before.

hello Tigsun, I have had 6 basil cell skin cancers taken off over the last 15-20 years. Then in 2014 I was diagnosed with ILC. I now have MGUS, which you might be familiar with. That is the precursor to multiple myeloma. I also have had 7 precancerous colon polyps removed. My opinion is that once your body knows how to make cancer cells, there is no telling where it might pop up! Multiple myeloma is a very serious disease and I pray you are getting the best treatment possible.
