Colon Cancer Part Two

      2 Comments on Colon Cancer Part Two

Things should be getting back to normal very soon. I’m kinda/sorta back to work, but have noticed my stamina isn’t completely back to normal. I visited my oncologist for the first time and learned a couple things about my cancer.

  1. It was very slow growing; that was a good thing. They got it all; very good. My prognosis is bright; excellent.
  2. He said the tumor was inside me for a “very long time.” This means that while I ate what’s called a “vegan” diet for six years (not real healthy, lots of junk, etc.) immediately after my husband’s heart attack, the last four years of eating a healthy plant based, heart healthy diet likely had a little to no effect on the tumor. If anything it may have slowed it down a bit, but today we don’t know. Research isn’t exactly precise concerning this.
  3. Every doc and RD I’ve spoken with has heartily endorsed this way of eating as a way of both recovering and preventing this from happening again. However, they caution nothing is 100 percent certain.
  4. I will be monitored closely for quite a while, looking for new tumor growth and such. Guess I’m my own science project.

I think this all sounds reasonable. The docs have answered many of my questions and I’m looking forward to a healthy recovery and (hopefully) a long life. I appreciate all your kind messages and am already tapping away, experimenting with some fun recipes. I’m looking forward to posting some new concoctions!

Onward and upward,

Beth 🙂
