Medical update-

Well after last week's post about my colonoscopy results, today I had my first visit with the colo-rectal surgeon. A pretty nice visit and I got to keep my pants on the entire time. Today was just a discussion about the lesion that's living in my gut, why its a bad thing and why it should be removed sooner rather than later. Right now, I don't have any cancer but this lesion isn't a good thing to keep living up there in the dark.

So, I have a another appointment next Friday and for that my pants will be coming off. I'll be getting an exam and then the Doc can decide if the removal surgery will be accomplished through my rectum, (rectum? Damm near killed him!) or if he does a laproscopic surgery. With the first possibility, he told me to expect to be off work for a week. Option 2, the laproscopic surgery will require 2 to 4 weeks of recovery! Yikes!

I really don't want to be off work that much! I'll just have to see how things go and plan on getting in as much guitar practice as I can stand during the recovery period.
