what a mind fuck
. i just got back from the vascular surgeon
tonight and he seems to think that i do infact need to have surgery
to get gid of my thoracic outlet syndrome
. after getting the x-ray
s back from the other doctor
, i was under the impression
that because the cervical ribs that the x-rays would have shown, are not there, i wouldnt have to have surgery
. NOT THE CASE. DAMMIT!!! so now i have to go talk to some other doctors and get thier input
, to see if i really do have
to have the surgery or if there's anything else i can have done to fix it.
well, what ever does happen, i know that i will be in good hands. when i was talking to my girlfriend about it, she assured me that if i were to go in to have surgery, she'll be right next to me both right before i have it done, and right as i wake up from it. that's a wonderful feeling. and as my good friend yablo says: "sigh"
