Yesterday, I drove to to the Port Macquarie Base Hospital, about an hour up the coast from here, to get a feeding tube inserted in my stomach. The main cancer surgery was done in Sydney, and the tumor was successfully removed, but I'll also be undergoing six week's radiation therapy at Port Macquarie, starting in two weeks. They say the radiation on my neck will make swallowing difficult and my throat sore so I'll need the tube to feed myself. How thrilling. According to the doc it's a precauctionary measure just to make sure no nasty cancer cells are still lurking.
Anyway, I thought the extra belly button was gonna be a one day job but they wouldn't allowed me to drive back home on the same day. Apart from that, I'm really tired lately and lethargic. I'll be glad when all this bullshit is over.
Thanks for asking after me, JustinO. I'm getting there... albeit slowly.
