So as most of you know, I had Hodgkin's Lymphoma (lymph node cancer). Now they think I have thyroid cancer. So I'm having surgery on the 3rd (next Wednesday) for a thyroidectomy. They will be removing all of my thyroid (both sides) so I'll have to be on thyroid meds for life... fun stuff. I had a consult with the surgeon on Monday and they said one of the possible complications of the surgery is to the nerve to your vocal chords. So they wanted to get a good idea of what my voice box looked like. SOOOO they stuck this tube camera up my nose and down my throat:
That is with my voice box open.
This is with it closed.
So, anyway, the surgery is about 3.5 hours long and it will be done at City of Hope in Duarte. I'll be staying over night. Then I'll be resting at home for a week.
I better get cards/flowers/candy/or any other gift you deem worthy. :)
I just wanted to show you the cool pictures!
I was so upset I forgot to bring my camera with me, cause it woulda been fun to have pictures of me with this thing up my nose. haha.
