Going under the knife....soon

What a day.

 

The Doctor said I have Barrets esophagus and hernia. So I will be having surgery as soon as insurance stuff is figured out. He said ignoring this, will most defiantly lead to cancer of esophagus. Not going there.

He said they will also be doing ablation of some precancerous cells. I will be admitted for about two days, I guess. I also have to have another EDG before the surgery.

 

Thats all I have for now I am honestly not worried. I have seen this surgeons record and he is awesome. Recovery should not be bad at all. He is doing the LINX procedure, although he offered the Nissan surgery. I am very glad this will soon all be over with.

 

He said the surgery will probably be in December and not to count on fixing Xmas dinner. YAY......SOMEONE else will have too for a change!

He also said no airplanes for 4-6 weeks.  Doable.

All good...feel good

Some radiation, no chemo

   Now to get through calling hours tomorrow.  I will be away for awhile.
