So.. surgery was fine. I wont say a breeze but I’ve survived worse.
In two days I get to visit another specialist for a different issue – my thyroid – and he will be talking to me about the test results of the ultrasound which will tell me if I have tumors or cysts on both sides of my thyroid. If they are tumors, he will ask me to schedule a biopsy to check for cancer. If they are cysts he will schedule surgery to remove them.
I wont agree to a biopsy (and neither should any of you reading this) I will ask for a lumpectomy (removal of the effected tissue). The reason you should not ever have a biopsy (imo) is because the body surrounds cancer cells/tumors with mucous to protect itself from the cancer cells. In a biopsy they take a needle and puncture the mucous sac to remove some fluids to test. The problem is the hole. It allows the cancer cells to leak out, and they can spread like wildfire. So please, if you’re reading this.. just get a lumpectomy. You’re not going to want to keep that lump for anything right? exactly.
My sister is (again) driving the 4 hours to be with me for this specialist appointment. I think it’s freaking everyone out that I am having health issues these days. I keep telling my family to relax, it’s going to be whatever it’s going to be either way.. there’s no point in stressing about it. Besides, working in nursing has been a great gift that way. I have been with soooo many people at the moment of their death, that it does not scare me in the slightest. I really should have taken that mortuary job I was offered.. apprenticing to be a full fledged mortician. ah well… maybe next time. 🙂
Anyway, time to go have a vape hit and get into bed.. and relax.
