Time for more surgery (10/1)…

Had a colonoscopy this past Friday (9/28), and the GE found what we suspected all along: my previous surgery point (where the small intestine and large intestine meet) has closed up and will need to be re-resected. I am on a liquid diet for now and anything more solid than scrambled eggs hurts like hell once it gets to that closed intestine point. My doctor has made a referral to the surgeon, so once I get that appointment we will figure out a date for surgery and I can’t get this over with. The only good thing to come of this is that i have lost 30 lbs. (my wife hates me though. 🙂 )

Update: Appointment with the surgeon is tomorrow (10/15) at 2:45 p.m. I am going to try and get the surgery scheduled for Halloween (Oct. 31) so that will give me time to make up lesson plans and get my classes ready for when i am gone. But the way the pain is going and how I can’t eat anything without pain, I will want the surgery whenever the surgeon schedules it.

Update #2: Surgery is scheduled for Friday, November 2. And my official weight is 285. down from 320 a month ago.

Surgery Tomorrow…(12/15)

well, tomorrow is the big day. I am scheduled for a 12 noon surgery to have a partial nephrectomy. I am trying to have a brave face, but am scared as fuck. i don’t want the surgery; i don’t want the cancer; i just want to live my life and go about my daily business and enjoy the 3 week break that i am supposed to have from school. 😦
