I had my surgery follow-up appointment on Friday. The doctor said the incision is looking good, and I need to come back in a couple of weeks to have my stitches removed. He gave me this awesome x-ray of my new femur and knee! Good news is that the pathology report showed that they removed all of the cancer. Bad news is that only 60% of the tumor died from 4 cycles (20 weeks) of chemo and they had hoped for that number to be closer to 90%. I didn't get an explanation from my surgeon for what that means for my prognosis, so I hope to get more information from my oncologist when I see her in a few weeks. As far as I know right now, I have 8 more weeks of chemo left and that will start back in two weeks.
Overall, I'm feeling pretty good post-surgery. I'm not in much pain, and if anything it's just discomfort. I'm waiting to find out when I will begin outpatient physical therapy. I do know that I won't be back to speed walking, or even regular walking without a walker/crutches for a while. I still can't bear weight on my right leg.
Thanks again for all your support, thoughts and prayers!
