I was so anxious waiting for today to be able to finally get the pathology report and put an end to the questions racing through my mind. So, I tried to pre-occupy myself this morning and didn't blog on purpose so that I would have some news to tell when I did. Well, here is my news; no pathology report.....aggh!! Now I have to wait another 2 weeks for a second follow-up appointment at which time I will finally get the results! I know this isn't really terrible news. I know that I will eventually get the report.... It is just the waiting and not knowing that always seems to be the worst. Maybe I should go by the old adage that "no news is good news" .
At least I got the steri-strips off today. Later I will post pics of what the incision looks like without the strips. The incision is barely visible even after such a short time but the area where my thyroid used to sit is quite swollen. It looks like they put something in there, rather than take something out :) I tried to clean some of the glue from the tape off but it is still a little tender so I will wait and soak it well in the shower.
