It took almost a month, but the pathology report is back.
The mass which was removed (as well as the whole lower lobe of my left lung), was an ephithelioid leiomyosarcoma. It’s a rare condition which usually starts somewhere else.
So now tests will be made to determine if it began in my lung or elsewhere and if it has spread.
Today a PET scan.
M.D. Anderson in about a month.
Recovery from the surgery has been so slow it’s difficult to notice improvement, unless I compare myself to the dark days in the hospital. I can now walk unassisted and am much more awake and aware. The nausea is mostly gone. My appetite has improved a little.
Until all this happened, I had what I like to call a “very healthy appetite”. But the anesthetics, or something, caused my taste buds to go haywire and almost nothing tastes right.
This has been a rough way to lose 25 pounds.
