The tumors are in there taunting me. They keep me from being in control. The surgeon is confident that he can drain the cysts. He is also confident that once he drains the cysts that I should get my life back. He is going to be drilling holes in my head. I’ve never been so scared in my life.
Brain Surgery. I never thought I would be having Brain Surgery. The cysts that live in my head have stolen everything from me. They have stolen the use of my left side. They have stolen my ability to speak. My speech is slurred. It’s like I’ve had a stroke. I hate what this cancer has done to me.
I can no longer walk on my own. I no longer have control over my left hand, or even my entire left side.
I want my left side back. I want my life back. Cancer sucks.
