We arrived at the surgicenter around noon. Dr. Hong popped out of his surgery to take a look at me. He agreed that I’d had a very good response to the antibiotics.
He said he couldn’t, in good conscience, put me under general and remove the implant without giving it a bit more time to see how it responds.
So we drove back up to the city and I’m back at the ER. I’ve asked to receive another IV shot of the antibiotics from last night (Did you hear the one about the Indian girl who waltzed back into the ER demanding what her treatment be?…..)
Anyway, I’m here and hope it’s not an uphill battle to get the shot. Dr Hong said they can call him to talk to him if it comes to that (I’m sure it will!)
Then, the plan is to stay in constant touch with Dr. Hong. If things go sideways at all, he’ll meet me at the surgicenter and remove the implant. Even over the weekend, if necessary.
I’m definitely still in pain and will stay hyper aware of my foob until this reaches a conclusion one way or the other.
But I’m super happy my health is good enough that we can give this a day or two to see if we can save the implant.
Sorry for the roller coaster ride — this is just my crazy life!
