Well, tomorrow is the big day. I finally have my consult with the surgeon for my thyroidectomy. By this time tomorrow, I should have the date for my surgery. I am really hoping that it gets scheduled for next week. The sooner the better! I cannot take waiting any longer. I think my anxiety will calm down once this is all over with. I have my list of questions ready to go to ask the surgeon. If anyone has anything else they can think of that I should ask, please please add me a comment! I don't think I could ever ask too much information! So far I plan on asking him how many thyroidectomies he does per year. It is recommended that a good surgeon perform at least 100. That sounds like a lot, but it's really only two per week. I am also having this surgery at UCONN which is a teaching hospital. I want to make sure he will be performing the operation, NOT a student. I don't want my incision to be botched by a newbie! Hmm...that's all I can think of right now, but feel free to let me know of anything you come up with. I will write tomorrow to let everyone know how the consult goes.
