This is it. I will have the mesectomy next Friday, October 26. They did all my pre op testing today and everything is a go. I am terrified. I am so ready to get the catheter out of my chest and then I'll have the drain tube. I just want my body back! They say I will only be in the hospital overnight and then have the drain for like 2 weeks. Then they said when I have mobility back in my arm I can return to work. All this will be followed by 6 weeks of radiation. I will write again when it is all over. I thank you all for your continued support and prayers.
