- Cindy felt a lump on right side of her mid-section. Planned to get a blood test a week after but was hospitalized several days later due to violent tremble.
- Tests found a large area of tumor among her digestive organs. Chemotherapy was suggested before having an operation.
- After treatments, a blood test report showed an alarming low red blood cell count. The tumor also grew larger. Cindy had the pending removal surgery right away.
- Organs removed: both the duodenum and the gall were gone; partially removed were the small intestine, the large intestine, and the pancreas.
- Five months after the surgery, Cindy had a severe pain in her tummy. The doctor found her small intestine adhered and a polypus. She endured a second surgery.
- It’s been another 5 months since the 2nd surgery and she is still recovering.

- Do your homework. Search online for similar illnesses, and what other patients, medical care professions, and support groups have to share.
