Met with the surgeon, who sent me for a CT scan today. An hour later he called me and asked if I wanted the good news, or the bad news first.
I opted for bad, at which point he started talking about my hepatic hemangioma. Been there, done that, ignoring it for now – yeah, I’m being pretty blase about a cyst the size of a strawberry in my liver. But my primary care doctor strongly believes it’s harmless, so I’m going with it.
The good news – the CT scan showed no evidence of an incisional hernia, so, I’m not being rushed off to surgery next week. HOORAY for that. But the scan showed considerable scar tissue from my adrenalectomy, which is now being blamed for my current painful situation. And which there really isn’t much to be done about.
To me, that last bit is actually the bad news – nothing much to be done about it. And if that’s as bad as it gets, I’LL TAKE IT. Not sure if this is the end of it or not; I’m meeting with my primary care doctor on Wednesday to find out more.
Whew. Dodged that bullet. Now if someone could only just stop this pain in my belly… 🙂
