Anyway, around this time, we were told that the doctor was running an hour and a half behind. For me, this was just extra time for my mind to run wild with anxiety. I asked as many questions as I could of the anesthesiologist and the doctor when I got my five minutes pre-op with them, but I was still a nervous wreck. I did my best to distract myself by watching HGTV.

Next thing I knew, I was waking up. Based on the texts Mike sent my family, the surgery lasted maybe 20-25 minutes. The doctor told Mike that it took him 19 seconds to remove the polyps (I had two). So specific!
|Good riddance! Mike said the doctor told him they were only a cm or two.|
Another obstacle cleared ... now we wait for the next cycle to begin!
