Her scheduler called me the next day to set the pre-op, operation, and post-op appointments for the less-onerous outpatient procedure, with the understanding that if the biopsy results were suspicious, the dates would change.
Then yesterday the office called, the biopsy was fine, so we can do the out-patient procedure. Yay! I only have to miss 3 days of work and pay a lot less money! And yay, it's not cancer! Honestly I'm not sure I thought about the cancer possibility on a conscious level. I was definitely anxious and enraged, which I mostly worked out in all-night-long dreams of beating people up (sometimes specific people, sometimes random strangers without faces). Today a weight has lifted off my shoulders that I wasn't even aware of, because today I don't have cancer yet again (this is something like my ninth or tenth cancer rule-out of various kinds-skin, breast, reproductive system--in my life).
So I am set for out-patient surgery on November 8, followed by a couple of days at home. Wish me luck!
