I'm scheduled for my TT on December 14th. (I am currently hypo) It is unknown if it's cancer or not. My doctors tell me to take 2-3 weeks for recovery. This time frame is near Christmas. We normally travel for Christmas--2 weeks on the road visiting family. When I explained to the husband that we may be spending Christmas at home this year (first time ever in 15 years of marriage) my sweet understanding husband turned on me. LOL His response--it's in your neck, not your abdomen or chest! I tried to explain to him that they will be removing a very important organ from my body and the body needs to adjust, he just didn't understand.
Are my doctors telling me a time frame that is too long? Keep in mind, leaving for Christmas is very stressful for me--since I do all the packing, shopping, and organizing. I normally do all the driving, but he would do that. How long did it take you to recover from your TT?
