Yesterday morning was taken up mostly by my visit with the surgeon. He seemed nice enough and knowledgeable and competent, one of the overly-jolly white male Mormons types who are quite common in this area – annoying in the long term, but pleasant enough for minimal interactions. He thinks it quite likely that cancer is present and thinks it’s equally likely that surgery will be curative. He also can do some genetic testing to determine if I’m at risk for some other types of cancers. Long story short, I will be having the surgery on Tuesday, which seems alarmingly soon. Monday is a holiday, so I have just two days to get things in order at work. My boss finally showed at least a minimum level of interest, so it’s good to know that he does have the capacity to be a human being. The surgeon plans to do a minimally invasive procedure but may find that it’s not possible to do so, in which case he’ll have to do the normal type of hysterectomy. So I’ll be in the hospital for either one or two days, and the recovery will be either two or six weeks. I could have learned if minimally invasive surgery could be done for sure yesterday but declined the pelvic exam that would be required to do so. I am totally sick of people poking around in my private parts!
The plan for today is focus, focus focus and get as much accomplished at work as possible. The never-ending snow storm continues, too, so driving to and from work may take up a good chunk of time.
