I wish people wouldnt talk about
surgery as a "last resort" it makes people feel like they are giving up. But in reality, surgery is the only way to beat the disease, the only way to win!
And there is no reason to feel bad about
choosing surgery because you are worried about
cancer and the long term effects of the meds on your body. Cece and I were talkign last night about
how sick those meds used to make us feel. And that cant be good, to basically pump yourself full of toxins, and i mean pred is some evil stuff. I didnt try many meds, my reason was, i could try something and it might or might not work, but even if it did work, i was always waiting on it to fail, or terrified i would have to take an antibiotic and go into a flare.
And anytime you can reduce your risk of cancer its a good thing!
And there are things about
surgery that take a bit to get used to, but really i often forget i have this bag, but im always grateful for it!
