Side effects of being cancer free

On Dec 15th it was 2 years I've been cancer free.

 

In October 2018 I had to go through another brain surgery because I was losing spinal fluid. In Feb my right ear started draining I was told it was just an ear infection. My ear drained like a water socket left on. From Feb to November 2018 it drained I told the doctor that I think it is spinal fluid tested it and it was. Well I did get an infection within the 6 months that had eaten the bone in back my ear.which the brain was pushing in the holes spinal fluid.

 

Oct. 8th i went through surgery for the second time, Doctor Ware found the leak and took fat from my stomach to patch the holes. He put artificial bone to replace the bad bone. I'm here to say that I see what they mean by cancer changes a person forever.

 

I am now doing so much better.
