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.
Not looking forward to this.
