The wait was short. The doctors weren't overbooked apparently.
We sat with the P.A. for most of this visit. I got to ask the questions that had been bothering me about the tumor and if they had actually found it. It was the description of it's location from the colonoscopy done that had me worrying.
He explained that describing the exact location of a tumor in the colon was difficult as the colon was constantly contracting and expanding. To locate it, it is tattooed with india ink. When the surgeon goes in with his laproscope, he uses it to find the tattooed site. Amazing huh? Have I told you more then you wished you knew?
I'm sure most people wouldn't have required this much information but considering my background in the medical field, I am uncomfortable with too little information.
I felt much better after our conversation.
I'm scheduled for the mediport placement on Thursday. It should be a quick little procedure after which I'll be napping the rest of the day.
And that's my day. How was yours?
