Hello All! Thanks for all the prayers! My port surgery went good. My surgeon was able to put it the same location as before. I am still sore and very tired, but glad I am finished with this step. The next surgery I have is scheduled for Tuesday, March 16. I will be undergoing a complete hysterectomy along with a bilateral oopherectomy (both ovaries come out). This will be the beginning of treatment, since it will eliminate all estrogen my body produces. The doctor said I will have to spend at least one night in the hospital, and maybe 2 depending on how things go.
