Many people have asked, I finally have a confirmed surgery date of Monday, December 12.
The plan is to have a procedure that should help stabilize my hip and pelvis. It will be done in Denver as out patient surgery and should only take 1-2 hours. I should be home that afternoon. One of my sisters is coming to help me.
I don’t need anything at this point. I don’t know how long the recovery will be; I’ve been told I should be up and about very quickly.
Later next week I have a consultant with a radiation oncologist. I will have some radiation to the hip later in the month just to kill off any pesky cancer cells that might be hanging out.
I appreciate all who have reached out. I hope to catch up with many of you who are local for coffee or a meal.

My monthly oncology appointment last week was fine. We just keep rolling along. Medications all the same.
Fulvestrant (a SERD that inhibits estrogen from feeding the cancer, 2 shots a month)
Ibrance (A CDK4/6 inhibitor that attacks cancer cells
Lupron (A monthly shot that puts me into menopause)
Zometa (A quarterly infusion that strengthens my bones)
Sadly I’m not so chatty. I have new lung cancer. Surgery in two weeks. Doubtful on long term.we will see.
Hope you recover well. It sucks.😕
Thanks for the update…we will be looking for updates from Glen as the procedure progresses. Hopefully it will be quick and recovery swift. Prayers and good wishes always coming your way.
