10th September 2012 – I had an appoinment with my Consultant Plastic Surgeon to get my results from the scans. The results were mixed, first off the cancer didn’t seem to be spread around my body which is a positive and he did say he would try and save my leg and that we would have to take it stage by stage.

11th September 2012 – I went for my Pro-op Assement!

12th September 2012 – I went in for my operation to remove the Angiosarcoma from my left leg.

13th September 2012 – Massive hole in my leg (I can see the bone, muscle & ligaments!)

  1. Are you okay?

    • Hi there…..Sorry it has taken me a while to answer your question….. but yes at the moment I’m fine thank you. Trying to get use to the false leg and having another operation to take the excess flesh from the leg. Also I’m still having my six monthly CT Scans to make sure the cancer hasn’t spread to my lungs. My next Scan is 30th June so fingers crossed.
