Just a quick update. Saw Dr R again this morning -- she said I was dehydrated because of the "bathroom problems" so she immediately hooked me up to an IV. Not fun but I did feel better afterwards! :D She doesn't want to schedule the new surgery until I am 100% so I am hoping that when I see her next Tuesday that we can get this whole next step figured out. The sooner I finish up with the next surgery, the sooner I can start radiation treatments. I also meet with Dr L, the oncologist, on Wed (I think). She has the last word on whether I will need chemo or not but I am pretty sure we are just looking at radiation.
Anyway, I ate almost an entire bowl of Broccoli Cheddar soup from St Louis Bread Company tonight -- and it hasn't come back up at either end so I think that's a good thing! :D
