Surgery - This Just Got Real!
Friday, April 13, 2018
I am having my salivary gland removed next Friday due to a mass since the only way to rule out lymphoma is to test the tissue. I have had other surgeries, but this one has me very nervous. I don't feel like I have lymphoma. Maybe I am being vain since the scar will be visible on my neck. However, The possible complications (which are slim) include paralysis of the face and or tongue. I was informed today that I should expect some paralysis right after surgery, but it should subside. This is stressing me out. I will not be able to exercise for 2 weeks either which has me nervous since it exercise that helps me control my weight! Can't wait for this to be over!
