I came home from the hospital today, could have gone home yesterday but I wasn’t feeling well. I fainted when I woke up yesterday, weird feeling, so I decided to stay one more day. I was supposed to go home the day after the operation but nothing went as planned. The operation lasted for four hours instead of two. The doctor took away tons of cancer (nasty thing to say) on the right side of my throat/neck. Everything inside my throat is all fucked up. I hate it. When I woke up from the anesthetics I was so confused and my arms was hurting so bad because they were in a weird position under the operation. Other than that I wasn’t in too much pain. I had two tubes going into my throat, in Norwegian it is called “dren”. The tubes gets rid of all the blood and operation fluid. It’s quite nasty and a hell to remove. I was in so much pain when they took the first tube, it was 15 cm inside my neck. The other one was not that far inside, but it was more painful to get out.
I never got to tell you about the “bad” news I got at the hospital on Monday. The doctor told me that if I have cancer in my thyroid, something the doctors at Rikshospitalet and Radiumhospitalet still wasn’t sure about, I have to go through two operations. Of course it was cancer. Therefore I have a new operation date Wednesday, January 26. I’m so f**king nervous!
