I'm actually going into hospital tomorrow and I'm feeling a wee bit nervous today!!
I've had a check up on Mini Me (My tumour) - the good news is it hasn't grown but the bad news is that it hasn't shrunk either!! It's been nine months since the last big check up on it and, although they still think it's benign, they want to do a biopsy on it. This will involve a local anaesthetic and a big bloody needle......yikes!! I will not be allowed to move for four hours afterwards (This prompted Chris to utter 'Does that mean you won't be able to move your lips either?' in a very hopeful manner......he actually looked quite devastated when I replied 'No it doesn't!!') and will have to stay overnight so that they can observe my clotting abilities!!
The biopsy will establish whether A. the tumour will just stay the way it is for the rest of my life and will cause me no pain or anything (funnily enough this is the option I'm rooting for!!) or B. It has the capacity to change and develop into something more nasty a few years down the line. If it's B then I'll be going back into hospital to have it removed. Looking on the bright side at least I won't have to wait an age to find out what's going on - I'll get the results of it on Saturday!!
(Secretly I am just scared that they are going to tell me that I can't have any alcohol for another two months.....if they do that.....I may cry!!!)
