Had colonoscopy and EGD- everything was fine- they did not find anything but it hurt- they didn't give me enough anesthesia.It is probably the lyme disease!

Kinda scared about thyroid surgery on Monday.

Pray for safe surgery and benign results
Thanks gals
Nancy

Hi Nancy,
Oh I just saw your post and had to reply. How are you coping today? I hope you're not stressing .Be confident that all will be fine. And keep repeating that. Be thankful for competent (and confident) doctors and staff. I know I will be thinking about you often since your procedure date is on my 13th wedding anniversary (11/21).
You will be ok!!! :)
I'll pray for you.
Bren

Hi:

had an appt. with the surgeon. He seems competent, very business like and explained everything. He didn't make it sound like it was super urgent where they had to get me in right away. Of course because of stress I would have liked to just get it done but John has off of work the week of the 21st. so that works better for him and then he is off all week to help me. SOOO I am having surgery the morning of November 21st. at the Aurora Grafton hospital. I will be there overnight and discharged sometime the next day.
The surgery will be much more involved than I thought- 2 hour surgery and they have to remove half of my thyroid on the right side where the big lump is. Apparently they do that because in order to make an accurate diagnosis whether it is cancer or not they need to look at the lump and all the tissue surrounding it. They may not remove the left lump unless it is on the surface of the thyroid. Otherwise if it is deep they would have to remove my entire thyroid and the surgeon didn't think that was necessary. They could just keep an eye on other lump by ultrasound to see if it grows and if it does then I would need more surgery later. YIKES!!
It stated to freak me out more when I was there- it just brought reality home.
I have had a very rough week. Started having major rectal bleeding and then excruciating pain like I have never had before all day yesterday after I had a bowel movement. So got an emergency appt with Gastro doc and will be having a colonoscopy and EGD next Wednesday at the Hartford Hospital.
I am exhausted from this week. Stayed in pajamas all day today
REALLY appreciate any support!!
Pray benign.
Hugs nANCY
