The orthopedic surgery guy came in and did an extensive and somewhat embarassing exam. I am not going to go into details into what he was interested in, although I will say the exam involved rubber gloves, a straw, a toothpick, and a pair of scissors.
Anyway, no surgery for me!
There is a whole list of awful symptoms that have to appear for surgery, and I have none of them. I was really relieved. The minute I become incontinent or fall down, though, I can get surgery.
So it's just a matter of waiting to hear from the radiation people. A radiation Nurse Practicioner came in already to do a preliminary exam.
