I met with the C surgeon yesterday and she explained the surgery to me.
I must say the C word on the door caught me by surprise and raised my blood pressure.
They have to remove more than just the area concentrated around the polyp.
I have to get an abdominal CAT scan soon and then meet with her again to discuss further and set a date.
She explained there would be some pretty bad pain for a week, then I would feel like I had been punched in the gut the second week. The third week it would feel like I had overdone something. Sure thing.
My experience tells me if they say 6 months to recover, it's really a year.
The directions said to take the whole thing apart. I said, screw that!
We got a new washer and dryer at the end of our bath remodel.
The problem? It sits right inside the bathroom door and was sticking 10 inches out from the wall. We even changed the swing of the door so it opened out against the linen closet in the hallway. It was narrow!
I started researching options and found a dryer side vent kit from the manufacturer. I determined we could gain another 5 inches by side venting.
The directions wanted you to remove all the electronics, the front bulkhead, the belts & drum, etc. Our washer and dryer are stacked and were a behemoth in our small bathroom. There was only 6 inches to the ceiling so no way to see what your were doing to remove the control panels, etc before you could get to the bulkhead.
We did the whole changeover through two, four inch holes by flashlight. We each both bled profusely and had to stop a couple times.
It took us 2 hours with bleed breaks. I spent that much time figuring out how we could do it. I attribute our success to that planning time.

The new washers and dryers out there are amazing.
They sense the weight and type of load and dispense only the amount of water necessary. They can do this because they don't have to fill the whole tub with water.
They spin much drier before they get in the dryer so they save alot of energy while using one third the water. That's very important in California where they penalize
you depending upon your electricity and water use.
If you just cant get that smoke smell out of your car after you've cleaned all the surfaces and used fabreze, etc., cut an apple in half and put them, face up, under the front seats.Change every two weeks or as necessary
I've always been a critique-y consumer. No, I don't do it for the free coupons,
If something isn't right, you say something to try and make it better for the next person.
I bought some hot dogs on the 27th and when I went to have one 2 days later, the sell date on the package was 8-11, nearly two weeks after they should have been pulled the day I bought them. When I took them back for an exchange, I found 9 more packages past their sell date.
Friday, I bought some almond butter. I looked at the sell dates. Many jars were past their sell date. I wrote them an email.
The most important line in the email was "shouldn't I be able to trust that when I pick something up it's not past it's sell date so I don't have to spend my time bringing it back?
When you quit smoking the only person you can trust to not "make you" smoke is you. You are your inventory control. You are the one leaving old stock on the shelves with old, past sell date feelings or you're clearing them away to make room for new experiences as a non smoker.
Trust in your mission makes right decisions. Thinking ahead guides those decisions.
