I saw the surgeon I’ve been waiting to see today. He was running two hours behind but I was lying in the exam room so it wasn’t that bad….usual pain levels. And he asked pain questions no one has ever asked me. Like do I curl up in a ball, do I cry, etc. I thought those were important questions. He also has had many NF patients and I saw two in the waiting room so I know that’s accurate. And a nurse and another doc talked to me as well, assuring me he is good and knows about NF. Whew.
So he felt the tumors on my left leg, left side of my neck and left wrist. He said he can get them all out (felt them and said they were near the surface) but he’s a busy guy and it will be a few months. It will be about a two and a half hour surgery. He said recovery varies, and my sister was with me taking notes and asking questions, worried that I live alone and how hard would it be? Gotta love her!!!
I have mixed feelings….I want to do it, absolutely, but I am worried about recovery as well. Stay tuned.
