Hi guys

Having Surgery on Wed. Then wait for pathology appointment on 2nd Feb and hope no more surgery needed. Probably radiation in March even if margins are clear .... could be randoms but most likely not fishing for a while.

Glad it is happening sooner than later!!

Cheers

Thanks for the reports Roberta. Wishing you a very speedy recovery, and my thoughts will be with you on Wednesday. I’m looking forward to more cracking fish and reports when you get back on the water. Your short breather might give some others a chance of catching fish.
All the best Sam.

Many Thanks for your support guys - it really helped me thru a very stressful stage! I am Feeling SO MUCH BETTER now it is on the way to being over. I was Lucky to get in early with a quality surgeon .... the waiting is a killer. It plays nasty mind games with you!

All good. Surgeon happy. I’m happy. Not too painful tho anaesthetic not worn off yet. Gotta wait for the pathology now - in 2 weeks. Should be home Sat. May be a little while before I am on the water again tho. Xx

Hehe, I went out every day I could before coming down .... so still have some pics/stories to tell when I get home. :wink:

Now just get out there and catch a few for ME!! :lek:

Keeping a positive attitude is a big bonus. Recover quickly and keep your excellent reports and photos coming.

I’m really glad to hear that everything thing went well Roberta. Good news on appointments being brought forward, rather than the usual delays. Hope you’re recovery is speedy too, enjoy watching Keith carrying the baton.
All the best, Sam.

All good.

Clear margins and all 3 nodes clear. Will have radiation for 4 weeks at Port Macquarie and possibly tablets afterwards (but not compulsory) .... so happy with results!!

Thanks for your support in my whirlwind 3 weeks!!!

I can basically do whatever I feel up to .... if it hurts, STOP!

SO HAPPY Xxx
