Everything went well for Monday's surgery, except the timing. We reported promptly at 2:15 but the operation did not take place until 7:15. That was a lot of waiting on an empty stomach (I had to cease eating by midnight and all clear liquids by 10am). So I was a bit grumpy by the time the anesthesiologists finally showed up. However, they didn't put me out under general anesthetic, but instead used a lighter anesthetic that they typically employ during colonoscopies (dare we say propofol?). So one minute I was joking with the operating staff and the next moment I was waking up post surgery at 8:30 pm. I was home by 9:15 and friends Anne and Diane kept me company while I ate some wonderful Thai takeout (thank you Anne!).
Other news was the lump on my neck that has recently arisen to perturb me is over my jugular vein, so a potential "two for one" excision had to be scotched. And the oncological surgeon said there was a likelihood that more lumps might show up in the future. Just like whack a mole!!
Got up this morning and prepped a case and participated in a hearing in the afternoon. Had to wear a hat to the office because I'm can't shampoo my head until tomorrow. As a result, when I pulled off the white stocking cap and bandage from my head this morning, I could see that it was going to be a very bad hair day for me. Luckily my vanity has been shredded over the past two years. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better hair day.
