Hi all, it's been a bit! Well happy thanksgiving! I just had a little bit of dinner for the first time in 2 years! I am alone this year thanks to COVID and some family members not vaccinated.
so I am coming up on my one year cancer free! My surgery was Dec 15, 2020, and I underwent 5 months of chemo first so last thanksgiving I was way to sick too eat. Now I just got my labs back and for the very first time all my numbers are in the green except B12(now taking injections) and my GRF is 35.
I was diagnosed with CKD after my Urostomy ☹️ And was a stage 4. With healthy eating and exercise I got myself up to a 3B!
with that said I did cook a Turkey, a low sodium stuffing, and all the crap that one would eat. Boy...I cannot eat much at all! My whole pattern has changed with eating.
I was wondering if anyone else has been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease after chemo and cancer like I was... and how you are dealing with eating with a Urostomy? I think it bothers me more due to the parastomal hernia around my stoma.
but I am thankful to be alive right now... I've lost 6 friends to cancer... all in their 50s. This past year. It's been a trying time. So
i am extremely grateful 🦃🙏🦃🙏🦃
( sorry this sounds all over the place, I'm on a cellphone..cannot see)🤷🏼♀️
