Out of surgery

Posted Mar 1, 2012 4:47pm

I just talked to the surgeon.
The procedure went well. From the time of the first incision it took about 2 hours.
The surgeon fells she got 90% or more of the tumor removed, enough for the vaccine. The next step is to test the removed tumor tissue to determine if there is enough protein. That takes a couple weeks to find out.
The surgery was close to her motor area and the surgeon feels there may be some slow movement on her left side, but she should make a complete recovery from that within days or a couple weeks.
She is still recovering and I should be able to see her in about an hour.
Stay posted as i’m sure she will send an update tonight or in the morning.
