So remember when I told you I had a boob scare a month ago? Well, I visited the breast surgeon referred by my GP last Thursday. She discussed in detail about my situation and what’s to be done. I had two differential diagnoses to the lump on my left breast. It was either a benign phyllodes tumour or a fibroadenoma. First one’s a concern, the second is relatively harmless.
If it was just diagnosed to be a fibroadenoma, she would have just left it as it was (although I would still want it removed regardless), but because it could also be a phyllodes tumour, benign or not, it’s best to be taken out. For my peace of mind, I just want the darn thing out.
My surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 8am. I’ll be admitted to the hospital at 7am, the surgery will be at 8am, and I should, hopefully, leave the hospital by noon. As much as I don’t want to, I will be under general anaesthesia for the minor operation. Mother dearest had been telling me wonderful tales of the side effects of GA, and how she had it when she had her thyroid operated on, how she felt nauseous and incredibly groggy for days, how my scar could tear, etc. Yep, I’m scared shitless. Thanks mum. Love you too.
Thanks for your positive thoughts and wishes on Twitter. I really appreciate it.
