I’m resting and waiting. My minor surgery went very well. I was in the operating room as planned at 745 Thursday morning and the procedure was quick and straight-forward. We were at the hospital early and I was impressed with the friendliness, professionalism and efficiency of the nurses and staff. I enjoyed meeting my anaesthetist and surgeon and felt relaxed and comfortable going into the operating room. When I woke up in post-op the surgeon indicated that he did not think that what they had found was serious.
I came home from the hospital exhausted and I have been spending the weekend resting and recovering. I am sore and am trying not to worry about the results I am expecting. I am waiting on two counts, the pathology on my lymph nodes, which hopefully will confirm what Dr. Deen suspected, and more importantly, the results of my MRI from Monday. I expect to hear from pathology in the next two days and hopefully about the MRI by mid-week. A year ago I would have thought that not getting results was good news, now I know it just may mean that no one has seen them. I do think that if there was something serious I would have been alerted. In the worst case I have an appointment with my radiation oncologist on April 8th and will get results then.
This little hurdle is behind me and I am going to be back on track soon.
