Well, it's confirmed, I need the surgery. Saw the doctor yesterday and the next time I go to fill my regular prescription, I also have to get a kinda powder to be administered by the nurses intravenously. And then I need a blood test before and after the powder is administered. The blood samples have to be sent to Australia for testing for some reason. Why they can't test in Malaysia is beyond me! The tests are to determine if there is excess aluminium in my blood.
After that, if all goes well, I will have the surgery to remove my PT glands from my neck. If I have excess aluminium in my blood, I will have to be treated for it, and then have the surgery. Either way, I will have to have surgery to remove or retransplant the PT glands from my neck elsewhere.
I'm quite scared of the pain I will experience when I wake up from the surgery. I'm afraid of the surgery itself. I just sooooo scared! Please pray for me! I just want all this to be over so I won't itch all over anymore and have no more joint pain! I just want to exercise to the point of sweating like I did before!
