Qu'est-ce que f*ck - part...i've lost count....

You know, we were really hoping that this year would be calmer, with less medical issues and BOY, OH BOY, we couldn't have been more wrong.

Not too long ago, I blogged that Pablo's pilonidal cyst that he had 3 years ago has returned with a vengeance. It is driving him crazy. We thought he was going to have surgery before Christmas to remove it but that didn't happen. Surgery is this coming week.

Here's where the 'qu'est-ce que f*ck' comes in...

A couple weeks ago, Pablo noticed another lump. A bit further south from the cyst. Coincidentally, Pablo had an appointment last week with his urologist and he checked out the lump. He was concerned and told Pablo to call the surgeon doing the cyst surgery and get him to look at it before the surgery. Pablo got an appointment and went to see the surgeon. He concluded that this lump had to be removed right away and he would add an extra 45 minutes onto the scheduled surgery time to remove this lump.

The concern is that this could be colon cancer.

They will test the lump once it is removed and we'll go from there.

This will make recovery from surgery that much more difficult since two surgeries are happening at the same time. Bad enough that the spot where the pilonidal cyst is needs to heal from the inside out so Pablo will have a whole in his lower back for quite a few weeks (which will need daily repacking with gauze...we went through this 3 years ago).

Pablo calculated that this will be 16 surgeries in 6 years. Pablo is only 34 years old.

    Okay, I've decided that this is it. They're going to take it out--it WON'T be cancer--he'll recover easily and that will be THAT.

    Hi. I Susanna from paperoranges blog.
    My husband JUST had this done a week ago last Thursday....Like 12-16 staples that only I can see the top 4 of. We thought this would be a no brainer but it's been a much bigger deal. The whole area is now red and a bit oozie..but not infected...He needs to wait until Friday to see if they need to drain the area. The cyst was the size of a golf ball! I will read your other posts about it. I hope your husband recovers quick! Sending healing thoughts...
    Best to you, Susanna
