Thank you Dian and Kevin and everybody. I saw the surgeon today and it's exactly what you say. I will have a WLE (whole new language, isn't it? :) and he'll do the SNB too. (I'll have some cool new scars to add to my collection.) Then we take it from there. I also have to have a chest x-ray, blood work, and other stuff that I can't remember right now because my head is spinning a bit. But it's a great relief to have a course of action!
I recorded the whole visit (with my doctor's permission of course) so I can go over it again and take some notes. But I guess this will all happen in the next couple of weeks.
I asked the doctor how much time I could take off from work and he said "as much as you want". So there are some plus sides to all this.
