Whiney

I don't mean to sound whiney or anything but seriously. Why do I even go to these doctor's appointments?

I had my appointment with the Plastic Surgeon this morning. The nurse took me back, asked what was going to be removed, and then expressed her joy that it was on my face and there wasn't going to be a need to redress me in one of those gown thingeys (gown thingeys is my term, not hers)

So I sit and wait. And sadly the only magazine that interested me was the people magazine from February with Anna Nicole Smith on the cover. I proceeded to read this publication twice before the PS came in. He then spent five minutes touching my cyst (do they not realize that this hurts?) and he told me that they couldn't do the removal in the clinic, that they would have to take me to the operating room and put me under to remove this.

Now, I don't like being put under (seriously, when I had my wisdom teeth removed, and they told me to count backwards from 10...I can't remember 9 and then all of a sudden I woke up in a completely different room and the nurse yelled at me to stay awake...so yeah I don't like being put under) but the way the Doctor was talking he made it sound like he would escort me to the operating room right away...Yeah...too bad I got my freaking hopes up.

They are scheduling a new appointment for me but first they have to schedule an anesthesiologist's pre-op appointment. And I'm going to have to take a whole day off of work for when they finally remove this thing because of the fact that they're putting me under. The doctor even told me that it would only take 20 minutes to remove this but he'd feel better if I was asleep...

YOU KNOW WHAT BUDDY? I'd feel better if you'd just remove this damn thing. I'm serious...I'm like one step away from Old Schooling it...I'm about to sterilize a very crudely made knife with rum and bite down on a leather strap to remove it myself!

I'm so sick of this run around...plus, I had to pay another $50 for this crap! And I'm sure I'll have to pay $50 for the anesthesiologist's appointment and then whatever my insurance won't cover for the freaking surgery.

Methinks I spy a conspiracy...

Thanks, I actually use it in my daily vocabulary. It makes me giggle :)

I concur. It is a conspiracy.

Hack it off! Something about performing surgery on oneself is morbidly fascinating.

I tried to prepare you.

And yes, it surely is a conspiracy. And yes, because it's cosmetic, you will probably have to pay the whole deal.

Boo to that. They said they were going to send it off for biopsy so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I WISH I worked in academia. My IQ wouldn't keep dropping. Huh, is IQ a static thing? Or are you dumber when you die than when you were 25? I always thought your IQ was something that never changed. This has made me curious. I shall investigate.

A Margarita said...

Yes, IQ does change over time.
Here's a reputable-sounding link:

He has a Ph.D so I'm assuming he possesses sound knowledge, and it makes sense so I'm guessing what he says is right.

What I got is that our IQ increases with age and then stabilizes. Our IQ levels vary depending on the IQ test we take but barring this difference, we should only have slight fluctuations once we reach IQ maturity, somewhere in middle childhood (I'm not sure what age that is). I have the feeling extensive damage to brain cells will affect your IQ, i.e. through a serious accident or excessive drinking ;)

I haven't been billed yet for some cosmetic surgery. So there is hope. --D

I still maintain that scars are secksy. Crude surgery it is!

I think the trouble with some cysts is they can have deep roots and the surgeons don't always know until they go to remove it. That is probably why he feels happier if you are under general. Having said that, If I was paying for the treatment I might also be concerned that I was simply being taken for a ride.
Good luck with it anyway.
