Post-op

Today I went for my post-op appointment with the oncologist and got news that may not necessarily be good news, but at least it wasn't bad news- the pathology report from the washings from my abdomen didn't show any cancer cells. This doesn't mean there isn't any cancer, but at least it didn't show that there IS cancer! The plan now is to go back in 3 months and to monitor with blood tests and pelvic exams. My doctor says my situation is "as optimal as it gets." So I remain cautiously optimistic!
