Yeah, this stuff really stinks. Anyway, I have to stay focused, collect information, and make the most informed decision that I can. It was only through my research over the past few weeks that I have come to undertand just how high my odds of recurrence are. I am still waiting to hear back from my surgeon to hear his thoughts. Depending on his response, I will decide what to do next.

Sorry, I took some anxiety meds about 30 minutes ago. I should probably go to bed now.
