Minutes – November 12, 2013 – It Has a Name

leiomyosarcoma

That’s what it’s called.  It’s considered to be a rare cancer, which doesn’t really mean anything except that there isn’t a lot of research to back up one treatment protocol over another. Since there’s no clear cut answer, I’ll be charging forward with the standard “Let’s Just Remove the Whole Kit and Kaboodle and Test a Few Lymph Nodes While We’re In There, Okay??” protocol, which Dr. Cloven assures me has a very good chance of taking care of it.

I’ll have a CT scan just as soon as the nurse calls me and tells me when.  Surgery is scheduled for the 25th.  After the surgery and microscopic laboratory observation that goes along with it, we will have a prognosis, as well as a better idea of what followup treatments will be needed.

Rare cancer?  Sheesh…even with this I have to be an overachiever.

Beware of Things with Funny Names!  Keep the Faith.
