As some of you know, I had the entire right lobe of my liver removed May 15th, due to a large, cancerous tumor, the result of hep C. The surgery went well, and I felt great for two months post-op. However, I then developed a hiatal hernia at one of the incision sites. My surgeon did not want to repair it until I am completely healed from the liver surgery. I've been feeling nauseous and unwell, with inability to eat much at one time. I had a meeting yesterday with the surgery P.A. and the surgeon, and he said I am still not healed enough for him to feel comfortable in doing the hernia repair. He said that the symptoms I'm experiencing have nothing to do with the hernia. However, since I've only felt this way since the hernia developed and grew larger, I feel he is wrong.
At any rate, it looks as though it will be the end of Oct. or beginning of Nov. before I can have the hernia repair.
I have blood work and scans scheduled for Oct., to determine if any cancer has returned or if any was missed.
