Day 2 - Ouch

Ouch that was sore, I certainly don't recommend operations that involve going through the rib cage and rib spreaders.

Other than some pain issues overnight and this morn, the op and recovery has gone very smoothly. They have done a thoracotomy and a wedge resection on a suspicious spot which is now away for analysis. Unfortunately it wasn't a pea but a clearly defined fleshy hard lump approx 1cm in size. During the process they also had a good look around right lung and couldn't find anything else out or order. Good news issue was detected early, just 1 spot and they taking an aggressive curable approach taking large margin with objective to curing this completely. There is an outside hope that this is unrelated to the Synovial Sarcoma.

Another 4 days in hospital and I should be out for Christmas. Thanks for all the prayers, txts, emails and comments in support. Although I facing this personally I feel really well supported and all you guys have my back covered.
