I am just hanging out waiting for the surgeon to call. Today is the day we are supposed to get the pathology report from the surgery. I know that no more lymph nodes will need to be removed but we don’t know whether there are clean margins. If the margins are clean then no more surgery is needed. If they are not, then more surgery until the margins are clean. I have also been dealing with a pinched nerve in my upper left back which has affected the strength in my left arm. This is a bummer as the right arm has the drain coming out of it and I need the left to push me up and around. I feel like one of those bad jokes ‘Hey what do you call a person who can’t use their arms? Matt!” It has gotten lots better thanks to a fabulous PT but this morning it was on fire again. Since I truly think this is partially stress related, I must be more stressed than I think waiting for the surgeon to call.
