Final surgery?

So, since I got cancer at 48, I was genetically tested.

Since I got genetically tested, I found out I had a greatly increased risk of ovarian cancer.

Since I had a a greatly increased risk of ovarian cancer, I had my ovaries removed, lapiroscopically

Since I had lapiroscopic surgery and am so overweight, I had a umbilical hernia.

And I had maybe my last cancer-related surgery on December 27 to sew up the hernia.

And, while I’m happy that the pain related to the hernia will be gone, I am so pissed that I still hurt and am stiff 3 days after the surgery.

So, while the surgery may have made my tummy better, it hasn’t made me any more reasonable. Like that’s a big surprise.

Sometimes, Always, Never

Remember the old “Sometimes, always, never” questions…parallel lines intersect never and the hypoteneus of a triangle is always its longest side?

Okay, so I’ve tried posting in this blog sometimes, when I was dealing with cancer. And I’ve tried posting never, like in the last few months, because, well, what’s worth posting and what is blather.

So, for a while at least, I’m gonna try posting always. Most of it will be blather. So, don’t blame me. You’ve been warned.
