The onset of this was so devastating because it had already metastasize to 4 major organs (liver, lungs, ovaries and lymph nodes). The problem was the cancer had produced a cyst on her ovary that was 32cm big and had the oncologist at BAMC stumped and unable to remove. At that time they were telling us that she will not survive a surgery so they had no idea what to do.
So we had to seek out additional help, and we asked for a second opinion. So with the help of the general/commander of BAMC we received authorization to be the first inpatient to inpatient transfer. We arrived at MD Anderson in Houston on a Sunday and Monday they came in and said they would do the surgery on Wednesday. Knowing that the doctors in San Antonio told us that she would die if they tried this surgery we were very scared. But the doctors there told us that’s because they don’t do this type of surgery and we do it everyday from patients all over the world.
After the surgery and the removal of a foot and a half of colon and getting a stoma, removing the ovaries/Fallopian tubes and a 32cm cyst on her right ovary. We were told that she may not make it to Jan 2018, which we were in August at the time.
So we returned to BAMC which we had already been in there for 58 days already. Essentially we are on our way back to the hospital that was going to keep her comfortable and let her die.
So at that time when we got back she was the talk of the surgical and oncology depts. This healing process has been hell on her body because she has taken a beating with all the meds and chemo. But we are now at the end of our journey because this disease is sucking the life out of her. The pain is out of this world and her energy is nonexistent. The medical bills have exceeded $300k.
There is a procedure out there for liver cancer patients but it only works on the liver which would leave her lungs and lymph nodes untreated.
Now we are here to ask for help to cover our outstanding medical bills and in the future help others pay their medical bills.
