No unfortunately i had the scan yday and it said the tumor has
grown very large now because of this i would be cut off from the
things i call life also there wud have been a much heavier risk of
me dying straight away today. So i have chosen not to have this but
live slightly longer 2 years at the most and enjoy my family
friends and things i enjoy doing. I thot my outcome would be so
much brighter but yet again i have to keep fighting to enjoy wat i
have left. Dont be sad.
Wee, am sad but in a way happy that at least the next two years will
have a quality of life that is better than if you had the
operation. I wish I was as brave as you, Louise, to calmly say I have
two years left at the most. I wonder if there is a way to get your
records shipped to M.D. Andersen Cancer Center so our NF doctors here
could take a look at them. Are you flying back now or driving?
