All I can say is today ended not as I expected, and unfortunately not in a good way.
I did spend the weekend at the caravan just to get over the infection and have some peace and quiet because my house is not always quiet. I only came home today as I had to go to the hospital for a check up on the infected wound. So off I went with Su as Darren has had to go to work for a few days, it was all very relaxed and we had a nice pub lunch. We then go to the hospital for the appointment.
All I expected was a quick in and out but I was actually there 2 1/2 hrs. The doctor called me in and after I,d sat down he started discussing the operation and the lump and the removal, while I,m just sat there thinking he's got confused here as I've had my post op appointment 2 weeks after surgery. So I was polite and I let him carry on and he's telling me about why I had the cancer and my margins and I,m really thinking has he got me mixed up with someone else its just a wound infection and you haven't even mentioned it yet. So then he starts talking about having to carry out more surgery and I had to stop him. I told him I,m really confused but what are you talking about.
They have just got some lab results back and they don't think my margins are clear and they think there are some pre cancerous cells left behind. So I,m now booked in for surgery on Monday for more tissue removal.
He did eventually check the wound and found a stitch was infected which has been removed, but to be honest they are going to remove my old scar next week so what difference would it make. I,m can't be annoyed with the doctor or nurses as they are lovely people but some warning might have helped.
So to say I was shocked was an understatement, this is the first time through the whole process I have been shocked because Iv,e always prepared myself before hand. So at least it has taken my mind of the results on wed for the chemo. I just wish it was all over it just seems to be taking forever to get through this.
