RTR, I think ALL of us know how you feel, the waiting almost drove me crazy, acting like I was not concerned, and inside full of doubt. From my experience, it was not anywhere near as bad as I thought it would be. I found that I could accept it better thinking that the operation would be my turn to fight the cancer, hopefully to beat it in one operation, but at least to know where I stood and what needed to be done. You have many friends here to help you, and they offer excellent advice. Take your time in recovering, and keep friends and family close.
