Week 7 – The days before the Surgical operation

  • Pain                    None
  • Mood                 5/10
  • Energy               Usual

I was preparing mentally for the surgical operation, i had never been in full narcosis before and the thought scared the hell out of me.

As the control freak i am, i did not fear pain, but i really feared not to wake up again, no matter the fact that full narcosis is totally safe.

I had a consultation with the surgeons where the told me the procedure and what side-effects the surgery could cause, it was primarily a small risk for some nerve damage to the shoulder.

However contrary to the doctors at my local hospital, the surgeons said it was not likely, but they would not totally exclude the risk of cancer.
This was a general frustration i experienced during the examinations before the surgery – different doctors looked at my case and they gave me quite divergent assumptions, which resulted in confusion and uncertainty.

If the surgery went according to the plan, it would last about 2 hours, however if they found anything malignant in the cyst, they would remove my tonsils and polyps besides taking samples in order to locate the source of the malignancy.

I went to the hospital for the surgery in the morning, anxious for the full narcosis, but the narcosis went very well and was not unpleasant at all, i slept very quickly and felt nothing at all.
