Two Years Post Op – Still Here Bitches

2 Comments

Hello…my name is Fi Munro and it’s been 730 days since my last fart…. 😆

Happy 2nd ‘sliciversary’ (a word my hubby uses) to my scar and my stoma bag!

2 years ago today I had my life saving operation for my stage four ovarian cancer….an operation I was told I may never have because my ovarian cancer had spread too far. I was just 31 years old…literally…it was less than a week after my 31st birthday.

Today I am alive, feeling amazing and absolutely loving every second of my life.

Normally I detail the extensive list of parts of my body that were removed during this 11 hour operation. Now, however, two years later, I find myself feeling grateful for all of the parts of my body that were saved. Today, and every day, I am so thankful for all of my medical team – my surgeons, oncologist, nurses, health care assistants – for saving my brain, my eyes, my ears, my sense of smell, my taste, my lungs, my liver, my pancreas, my diaphram, my stomach, my kidneys, part of my bowel, my bones, my muscles, and, above all, MY LIFE.

I spent a long time coming to terms with the parts of my body that were removed – however, I am here and I am alive and that is the most important thing.

I start each day with a silent thank you to everyone who has been involved in getting me this far; not just my medical team, but the many complimentary therapists I see; my family; my friends and, of course, my hubby Ewan.

So if you have been told that you have cancer, and you are worried what tomorrow will bring as you face an uncertain future then I encourage you not to live in fear but to grab life in both hands and go and make the best of it. 12 weeks after this operation I started training as a yoga teacher – that was just weeks after leaving a HD Unit with an 18 inch scar! It was a year long course and some people asked why I would spend ‘the little time I have’ training for something I may never finish. Today I am not only a qualified yoga teacher but I now have my own yoga and holistic therapy business….just imagine if I had listened to the nay sayers. I am going to go as far as to sugest that I wouldn’t be here because I wouldn’t have embraced my life and followed my dreams. I literally would have had nothing to live each day for because I wouldn’t have been living my authentic life, the life my soul wanted to live.

The only person who controls your life is you. So, today, make a decision to live it because, guess what, we only get today once.

“Do something today your future self will thank you for.”

Love and light, Fi xxx
