I posted a while ago regarding my upcoming surgery. I want to thank you all for your comments. I have since then re-evaluated my future plans and have put off working for 3-6 months post surgery.
My surgery is a week from today (Feb 1). It was suppose to be yesterday, but my pre-surgery lab work came back with low platelets (I have chronic ITP). So now I'm on a high dose of steroids for the week and hope my numbers reach 100,000 (normal starts at 140) by surgery. I was very dissapointed to have postpone surgery, but have a complete understanding as to why.
The wait is agonizing. It seems my pain has been worse this week than in the past. The hardest part of this whole experience is the fact that so few friends and family truely understand what I am dealing with. I consider myself very high functioning considering my diagnosis and pain. This gives the appearance that I'm not really suffering. I dont know if they think I should be bed ridden? I'm just ready for this all to be over
Sorry for the vent, its been building up for a while now!
