Sharon – Healed of Peritoneal Cancer

I had been battling a cold off and on throughout December 2013 and January 2014. I was very bloated and tired, and I knew something was wrong. I decided that I would make yet another visit to my GP. I asked the nurse to take an x-ray, because I was fairly certain that I had pneumonia.

February 1, 2014

The doctor looked at the x-ray, saw that I had fluid on my right lung, and sent me right to the hospital. Beaumont Hospital began to run a series of tests. The tests revealed fluid on my lung and in my abdominal cavity. The fluid on my lung was found to have adenocarcinoma cells in it. There were two spots found on my lung. A mammography showed 5 spots that they wanted to biopsy.  However, I refused this until after my other issue was resolved. My cancer antigen or CA-125 was 4,095.  (Normal levels are typically less that 35.) 

In the midst of this flood of bad news, my primary care doctor came in to tell me that they believed I had ovarian cancer.  His closing words before he walked out of my room were, “Very grim news.  I’m sorry”.   Later, a GYN specialist came in and started to rattle off mortality statistics, to which I replied, “I am not a statistic.”  That night was difficult.  I was overwhelmed with the report I had received.  The floor was very noisy, with a woman continuously crying out with moans of pain.  My nurse decided I had been through enough, and moved me to a beautiful new room – a HOSPICE room.  The enemy was attacking with a vengeance. 

2 days later I met my surgeon, and we discussed his recommendation of a complete hysterectomy and possible bowel re-section as it was suspected that the ovary behind my uterus and bowel both were involved in the cancer. That day, my CA 125 was 5,045. I was eager to get the monster out of me. My surgery took place on Feb 11th.

The cancer spread was far more extensive than the doctor had anticipated. I had a complete hysterectomy, 6"of my bowel was removed, the fatty tissue in my stomach was removed, as well as my appendix, the upper part of my omentum and some cells were burned off by laser from the fatty tissue on my liver.  All abnormal looking tissue was removed with the aid of gifted hands and a microscope.  The biopsy of all of the organs and the portion of my colon were all negative for cancer.   The only cancer detected was in the peritoneal tissue.

I spent 3 days in CCU and then another 6 days in a regular hospital room.

On Feb 26, I went for my follow-up visit with my doctor.  The diagnosis had changed to stage 4a primary peritoneal cancer (the lining of the abdominal wall). An aggressive chemo regiment was recommended. My first treatment was administered on April 10th.  I was overdosed, and became very frightened and depressed.

During all of this time, I had a lot of people praying for me, but they were praying the “If it be your will” prayer.  I had no peace.   Then I was invited by friends to attend Pastor Tim’s healing meeting at Rochester First Assembly of God, and was told the biblical truth about healing and that GOD HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH MY CANCER.  Pastor Tim equipped me with healing scriptures and Cindy Cox prayed with me.  When she prayed, I felt a warmth enter my body, and I knew I would be okay.

I returned to chemo armed with Mark 16:17-18.  These signs will accompany those who believe: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.

After 6 chemo treatments, my CA-125 was 21!   My post chemo CT scan on September 4 showed NO EVIDENCE of DISEASE and my CA-125 was 31!  I was told that I am in remission.  Praise God!!!

After this amazing God report, I scheduled the digital mammography.  This follow-up test reduced the suspicious areas in my breast from 5 to 1, and my doctor is fairly confident that that spot is a fibroid. I will return for a reevaluation in March.

God is a good God, an awesome God!  My scripture, Micah 7:7, says But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me.

He heard me!  Thank You Jesus!
