Marsden update

25 Feb

Hi all,

Just a quick update to say all went well today, and I’m back in good drugs land. No complications, and the Prof said the margins looked good, although we still have 10 days to wait for the final report.

Due to my nice trial run a month ago, I’m aware that I felt fine at this stage last time, so I’m prepared for the impact when the rest of the general wears off. As well as the local anesthetic injected directly in the operation site.

The only big difference is that I am quite nauseous, which is made slightly worse by the personal pain killer button, but I’m hoping that will clear away soon. I’m not giving up the pain meds!

Anyway, just a quick note, so that’s all for now – I’m going to go back to dozing and hopefully get a good nights sleep.

    I hope the results come back clear for you! I’ve followed you from MSE and hope that you and your family are doing as well as possible. Ask for some cyclizine if the nausea gets too bad! 🙂

    Hi! I’ve clicked through from Macmillan. Just wanted to say that I had a tracheletomy last year. If you want to compare notes, let me know. Rest up!

Love to hear from you! Note you don't have to leave your email address.
