Week 57 Day 4: Benign or not?
Sorry for the late update! Just came back from a soccer game! Feels so so so good!
Ok! Updates! Sadly, Prof Wong is still unable to determine what the two new tumors are after the PET scans and ultrasound. The big one is directly under my right armpit which is visible when I raise my arm. The other small one is underneath my left abs which is not visible. So he decided to do a swab test by poking a needle through the big tumor, yup the needle is big too! LOL. We can’t do a swab test on the small one because it is not visible so we have to use the big tumor as reference. I should be able to know the results next Friday when I see him again. Yes the suspense is eating me again… pfft. So what are the possible results and the follow-up actions?
1) Yeah! It is benign! We will decide whether we need to remove the big one because it is causing me a lot of discomfort but we also have to determine that it is safe to remove it. As the small one, we will adopt a wait and watch option.
2) Damn! It is cancerous! Most prob we have to remove it and maybe have to go through another round of chemo to retard it.
3) Wot? No reaction! Most prob an incision to remove it for a swab test and then back to option 1 or option 2.
Yup, we shall see next week! I am still going strong. Remember, I am a rocket. =) Have a beautiful weekend! #watchmingbeatcancer

Still can’t determine whether the tumor is benign. I will strip then! A quick small incision for a swab test. Update later! #watchmingbeatcancer
Here and waiting! #watchmingbeatcancer
Week 57 Day 3: The Suspense
I am back at jogging! Woo hoo! I can pretty much cover 5km comfortably; i was struggling to hit 2km the last time round. Hopefully I can increase some mileage next week. I miss the “10km is nothing” days. LOL. I have also been doing hot #yoga and it has been very helpful for me. I find it very therapeutic and it helps me to sweat more (I can’t sweat much now as my body temperature is lower than before).
Later in the day I will be meeting Prof Wong to discuss the PET scan and the #ultrasound results. The suspense is really killing me. Not sure whether it’s subconscious or what but the 2 new “spots” are causing me some discomfort these 3 weeks…. sian.
I am mentally prepared this time round so I know what to expect. Unlike a year ago when it just hit me like wrecking ball…“I came in like a wrecking ball, I never hit so hard..” You get the idea la haha. For someone like me who has been through #cancer once, the fear of it coming back is always there and the thought of it being lethal will never disappear. But I am stubborn, no matter how you push/poke/pull/stab/cut/slice me, I will just get back up and push forward. =)
Sharing a picture from a good friend today! I told him I am not an arrow, I am a fxxking rocket. LOL
More updates later! #watchmingbeatcancer
