Yeah, Cancer. The Big C. Hmmmmm....
So, I went on to have surgery at SFGH, having my thyroid removed. Initially, not fun at all, but I've made a rapid recovery and am currently getting ready for the second phase of treatment, Radioactive Iodine, which I swallow in order to kill any stray thyroid cells.
So I have cancer? Somehow it hasn't hit me... I don't have a feeling of dread or fear. Rather, I keep thinking: "This is a big pain in the butt. It's getting in the way of the life that I'm trying to get back in the form of working. Instead of working, I'm going to doctors...surgereon, endocrinologist, nuclear medicine.
But dread? Fear? Nope.
