Hi, Melanie ~

Congratulations on completing your AN surgery!  Thanks for posting and letting us know that your recovery is commencing.  Patience will be an asset in the days and weeks to come but I trust you'll enjoy a complete recovery.  We'll be here to support you and hope that you'll stay connected with the site and the forums so we can share in your progress.

4.5 cm AN diagnosed 5/06.  Retrosigmoid surgery 6/06.  Follow-up FSR completed 10/06.  Tumor shrinkage & necrosis noted on last MRI.  Life is good. 

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.  The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.

It is what it is
