  1. Update!

    I came back yesterday from the hospital, had my first surgery (partial hysterectomy) on Friday.
    It took may be three hours but the surgeon did a great job, with the help of the Da Vinci robot.....and many other people...
    It was tricky since adhesions are all over the place and it takes time to cut it all. But no more hemorrhages for me from now on!! What a relieve! He also made a repair on an hernia.

    Since it was an endoscopy surgery, I'm still having the gas pain in ...
  2. 3 years

    Hello friends!!

    When I reached two years I was happy that my surgeon's goal/prediction was reached, I felt great besides a few hick ups...life was good...

    My 3 years anniversary was a few days ago but I was in no condition to communicate. This time it's different.

    So my pants suits don't fit anymore....I knew bad news were coming my way..
    I wanted to wait until my treatment was over but could take months...so I decided to face the scale today : 20 pounds!!! gained since like October!!

    Last New year's eve I was sick, when to the ER, got strong cortisone, gained like 10 pounds, my suits was tight but I could wear it...lost it in about 4 or 5 months, but I could ...
  5. Making new soup in an old pot

    I'm always about balance in diet, did study nutrition for more than two years, and currently study naturopathy, because I think it's always better to try to prevent or treat the whole person, instead of treating just symptoms.

    Nutrition is really a way of prevention, and sometimes can also be a "cure".

    A French doctor wrote an interesting book, I was reading it about 15 years ago, indeed he didn't have access to today's research about colon absorption etc ...
