    I had a doctor's appointment the other day. The doctor is happy with my progress. However, I still have the last tube in my abdomen and will for (possibly) another month (until the drainage decreases to a certain point).

    Well Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I just returned from my doctor's appointment. The doctor removed the last tube from my abdomen. In about two weeks (or so) I can start working out and strengthening my abdomen (as well as the rest of me).
    I have to make an appointment with my oncologist and find out if I need chemo or radiation. I will let everyone know if I do.

    Rhaven,

    That's great news for the one and fingers crossed on the other (the doctor's appointment)! Will continue praying for you.

    Excellent news! I had been wondering when you would get the tube removed. Take care and good luck with your appointment! :)

    I spoke to my Oncologist on the phone today. He said that I no longer need any further treatments. I do have a final follow up appointment with him on Thursday.

    AWESOME! Time to get back to Life again! :)

    BTW, I just came back from the doctor's. Yesterday I fell up the stairs at work and cut my skin right below my left knee cap. Three stitches. Today was the first check. Everything looks fine. Should be OK next week. :hammerhead:

    I am glad that you are OK. Now EVERYONE knows that gravity works. You do not need to test it be falling up a flight of stairs. All that does is get you hurt (your knee is proof of that. ;)) I hope that your knee heals quickly!
