So that’s it....back out the other side again!. I’m yet to see Simon (the surgeon), as I gather he moved onto another case after me. I understand from his colleagues he had in the room at the time everything went well. Catherine also said the same when I woke up having been told the same.
Apparently when Simon got ‘in there’ it transpired that the cancer had grown a bit. With this in mind it meant that he had to take the entire lung out. Whilst it’s really disappointing to hear, I am reminded of where I was only a few weeks back when I was told surgery was out of the question and I only had 2-3 years to live. I am now really confident that this will give me many more to enjoy life to the full !😀
The big test for me will be when I start running again...sooner rather than later hopefully. I’m told that only having one lung will not have to stop me. I am completely focussed now on making sure it doesn’t!
Thank you all for your incredibly kind messages of support to Catherine and I. We have such wonderful family and friends and I genuinely feel that I have that ‘army of people’ supporting every step of the way!
