This surgery could cause a lot of grief. Worst case-impotence, colostomy, and loss of some use of my right leg.
As long as it does not interfere with riding my horses......
Anyway, I'll let you know how it went sometime next week.
Nervious, I know that feeling. Last Aug I noticed a small lump on the left side of my neck. Just before our AK sheep hunt. After three rounds of anti biotics, without success, my doc sent me to a specialist who determined it was canser.
Other than the lump there really wasn't any symptoms, I felt fime. Surgery was in Dec. A total neck disection--split the lower jaw and cut to my left ear. Followed by 32 sessions of radiation and six weeks of chemo.
Had my K/scan three weeks ago and I'm clean.
Now barring a reoccurance, I'm beating it and so will you!!!
