My surgeons nurse called me and said that my surgeon has put me in for Tuesday 3/2/10 for my surgery. He will be leaving for a 3 week vacation at the end of the week so he requested I come in that day for my surgery. I didn't expect it quite so soon. (the added my pre-op with my consultation on the 1st) But I am glad to finally get it over and done with. The pain has gotten a bit worse and for the past couple of days I have had some swollen saliva glands and lymphnodes. :( That kind of scares me. We will go over everything on monday as far as RAI treatments and how long I will need to be off work. They gave me a letter to give my boss stating that I could be off 3-4 weeks and she flipped out on me asking if she had a choice in my surgery date. WTF? She is so ....so... I don't even want to say. I basically had to tell her I am sorry MY CANCER is such an inconvienence for HER. She's pretty ruthless when it comes to off work orders, especially when she has 5 people out already on maternaty leave and injurys. Oh well, my health comes first. I shall let you all know what the surgeon says on the preop / consultation.
