I am numb with relief.
In the end, after all the testing, after all the discussing, they do not think it is cancer.
The tumour is benign but aggressive. More aggressive than they expect to see in a benign tumour.
But they think it is benign nonetheless.
It has penetrated the soft tissue and has areas of fast growth. If untreated, there are indications it could turn malignant.
But they are treating it aggressively with resection.
I have time.
I have so much time.
It is an amazing thing.
The details will come later. For the moment, I want to drink in the time, let the relief wash over me as the numbness abates.
