therapist Annette

Annette: We saw this therapist.  Her name was Annette.  She was telling me what I had to do after surgery.  And she said as far as some things to do,

you do nothing at all – it’s complete rest – because if you don’t it will take you much longer to recover.  The doctor explained about where the cancer is located, and he explained about the procedure.  It starts in the throat area and goes down maybe behind the lungs in the lung area.  They do a biopsy to check for cancer in the lymph nodes.  Another doctor came in to do my EKG.  He was there for a short while and was gone.  Another doctor checked both sides of my hands real intensely then went on to something else.  If they find no sign of cancer in the lymph nodes, they’ll proceed with the major operation sometime later – he said a week to ten days later.  So by the 20th it should be done.
