My surgery went well, they blocked the nerves in my arm, scary to have done, I couldn't feel my arm I had to ask where it was at, now I am waiting for the pathology to come back to find out if the tumor was cancerous or not. They also did the carpal tunnel surgery at the same time. Pain not too bad in the carpal tunnel incision, however the metacarpal tumor one is killing me, lots of swelling too. however, I shall survive. Thanks for all the encouragement prior to my ordeal, I sure appreciated all the help and great advice. Have a great day my friends. ((hugs))
