I can have a brief reprieve. The doctor responded to my inquiry about the results in the portal at 7:29 pm. (The message is time stamped.)
The polyps are all benign. There are signs of stomach irritation but no tumors. Woohoo. So now we can relax a bit. I’m going to continue eating the cancer fighting diet with the one exception of coffee. I’m not giving up coffee. I enjoy it way too much to concede on that point.
I have the next scope in 3 months to double check the bile duct where they removed the cancerous growth but for now… I’m going to do a happy dance. Small victories are just as important as the big ones.
“There is nothing in this life that can destroy you but yourself. Bad things happen to everyone, but when they do, you can’t just fall apart and die. You have to fight back. If you don’t, you’re the one who loses in the end. But if you do keep going and fight back, you win.”― Alexandra Monir
