I'm intrigued that they didn't check pathology while you were on the table. They've done that on both of my previous surgeries this year and will on next week's procedure. It does mean being anesthetized for two hours each time but allows them to remove more tissue right then instead of having to heal and go back for more.

Very pleased that you are healing well. Sorry you are still in pain but hang in there, it will get better each day!!

Sending healing vibes!!
