Last June I found out after almost smoothering to death from fluid on my lungs that I had Ovarian Cancer.
- It didn't run in my family
- There are no exact symptoms to go by
I was flabbergasted but not afraid. I felt the Lord close to me and knew He had my hand leading me through a time in my life I have never been and would not have to go through again once this was all over with.
Well to make a long story short, I started Chemotherapy which wasn't as bad as all the stories you hear about it. Yes I did get weak, no I didn't get naseated, yes I lost all the hair on my body some places I didn't miss at all and some like the top of my head I missed greatly. You don't realize how cold you can get when the hair on your head is gone! Yes I lost about 30 pounds which didn't hurt my feelings at all since I had become a chunky girl!
I did have a radical hysterectomy and was cut from my belly button down till they couldn't go any further. But the cool thing about it is my doctor glued me back together with stuff called megabond. I just have one long line which is disapearing as I type ;)
My hair is growing back now but since I have 2 more rounds of Chemo I don't know if it will remain, it might fall out like the last time. Oh well I don't like it anyway, it grew back all salt and pepper. Me no like. That is what the dye bottle if for isn't it.
I am wearing a wig on loan from the Chemo center, I like being a blonde.
