Don't you just love having to wait? lol

Hi all! Brian here! Again, sorry I haven't posted as much but I've really mentally fatigued with all that's been going on.

Well, saw the doctor overseeing my case yesterday. My MRI can back clear, which means the cancer hasn't spread to my lungs, which is a plus. The CT scan on the tumor came back the way the doctor thought it would. He's pleased with how things have been going, so he said it's time to schedule me for surgery. I don't have the exact date yet, but he said it will probably be in the next 2 to 3 weeks. Both he and the plastic surgeon have to get together and see when they're both available, since the doctor I saw yesterday will actually be the one removing the tumor. The plastic surgeon will be doing the reconstructive phase of the surgery once the oncologist has finished. So, a huge weight lifted off my shoulders lol Now, the waiting game starts. Don't you just love having to wait? lol I've missed talking to all of you and hopefully I'll be on Friday to chat and offer some positive vibes. :) If anyone wants to keep in touch with me, just shoot me a PM and we can chat :)

Your friend,

Brian :)

I will be thinking of you Brian! I so admire your courage and outlook. If anyone deserves a break, itโ€™s you! I also hate waiting, but this is a big deal and waiting for the doctors to coordinate everything appropriately for you is desired. I know that youโ€™ll come through with flying colors because thatโ€™s just who you are and what youโ€™re all about! Something worth waiting for Brian!!
