Tomorrow is the day...

Well, tomorrow I undergo a partial-neph to get this demon cut out of me.  I've been waiting since July because I wanted a specific surgeon at Vanderbilt.  It's been a little stressful and now that it's here I'm rather anxious.  I've never had any symptoms, and my cancer was found by accident and luck, but these past couple of days I've had all sorts of weird twinges and quick pains in my left side.  I'm sure it's all in my head, but the stress really does weird things to you.  At this time tomorrow I'll be in surgery and I just want it to be over.  I'm hoping the recovery isn't too bad and in a few weeks I'll be back to normal.  Thanks for everyone who shares, I've gained a ton of knowledge and I have a good idea of what to expect.  Here's to keeping the faith!

You seem to be in very good shape to deal with this, it should be a breeze for you. Any difficulty you have afterwards just remember that you get better with every day that passes. Best Wishes.

And your doctors, that he or she moves in & out of there with a quickness & accuracy to grab that little trouble maker and stuff it in a petrie dish to perish! 

Soon you'll be on the mend, be patient with yourself and you'll be good as new very soon.
