Stitches are out and I was told I am healing well. The surgeon said the biopsy results are taking longer than expected and they will call me in as soon as they are received. At this point in my life I really don't care about the outcome. I'm so far behind in everything and life just keeps getting worse so why not throw something like cancer in the mix. Wether it is or isn't I will still have to work, I will still be broke, I will still be alone.....I'll just not care as much as I used to about getting anywhere in life.

The swelling is gone and the bruises have faded. These stitches will be out at 10am tomorrow. I will hopefully get my test results as well...I'm not as scared over it now as I was the first time I heard biopsy. Anyway, I'll write more tomorrow.....going to eat some yummy food my roomy just baked :)

The surgery went okay, there was more bone loss than expected and the surgeon said my prognosis is fair. The mass and bone was sent out for biopsy and now I wait for the results. After opening me up and removing the infected bone from my jaw he then got to the molars and saw they were not the cause of the infection. There were no cracks or fractures in either of the roots. He did say I had significant bone loss and there is still a chance that I could lose the teeth. The surgery was not covered by my dental and with no health ins my bill is already around $3000.. On the 9th I will have the annoying stitches removed and discuss the biopsy results if they come back by then. On the 17th I will be able to chew again on that side of my mouth...still soft stuff but still able to chew. My best friend and my new roommate have been great making me soups from scratch to make sure I eat. I was able to take a 2week unpaid leave at work as well...the unpaid part blows but I needed the time off.

I don't know how the next few weeks are going to turn out. The surgery I was supposed to have is now scheduled for the 30t and its not going to be easy. The surgeon explained everything to me in detail from the scraping of my jaw to the possible paralysis and if that wasn't bad enough...the biopsy on the mass and the bone he will be removing. For the last few days it has really been weighing heavy on my mind. I didn't say anything to anyone about the biopsy part til I let it sink in in my head. So here I am 32yrs old facing my 3rd cancer scare. I am so lost right now.
