Well everything went as planned I got to the hospital, went through the ordeal of multiple people trying to get an i.v in. Went to the operating room, woke up in recovery thinking wow so it is done. My mom and sister come in and said something to the effect like I know you are tripping that he couldn't the band and I was like excuse me what do you mean I didnt get the band?
They proceeded to tell me that the surgeon went in and found a hernia (no biggie) and repair that but on my stomach were the lapband would go he found a tumor that had to be removed. Of course when you remove the tumor a small part of the tummy goes too, so he had to suture that up and you cant place the band on top of a suture, so I have to wait a couple of weeks for my tummy to heal and then he can go in and do the band. OMG I just started crying but then I realized it was a blessing if I had never been trying to get the band I wouldn't have known about the growth, he says due to my age and the way the growth look he doubted that it was malignant but test results come back in couple of days. I am not even entertaining the thought that it was anything but benign.
So back to square one, I am extremely disappointed but what am I to do, first the gallbladder and now this, well I am not discouraged, I am determined that the first available date after this heals I'm there. My surgeon says well before the summer is over we will be well acquainted. He is a good guy
Happy Ninth Bandiversary to Me!
