I had my followup visit with the surgeon today....
If anyone in the Chicago area ever needs this surgery - HIGHLY recommend Dr. DeJong. I could not have had a nicer experience and what a great staff! And one more time - nothing like having an entourage of super hot residents to look at!!!!
The tumor was not cancer - which was what I was expecting to hear - but it is still nice to have that confirmation. Tape is off now also. And Dr. Pittman still had the tumor pic on his cell so he sent it to us... Love it!!
By the way - the small yellow part is thalmus (?) - the tumor was descending into the chest - this part is for the medical junkies of the viewing audience.
