Surgery Update Monday August 15th

Katy was taken to surgery around 12:15 pm and was there until around 6:15 pm. The surgery was supposed to last 90 minues but they took their time and did some extra work that they had not anticipated.

Katy is in recovery and will be going to 9 east. They had to remove the ear canal tube that runs between the ear and the back of her nose. The ENT surgeon said it was at a weird angle for some reason and that contributed to the leak.

Katy had no hopes for the hearing in that ear to ever return, so that is why they did it. ENT surgeon said that Katy’s continued leak occurs in less than 5 % of patients. They will keep her for a few days to make sure the leak is stopped and the headaches are gone.

In other news, the ENT surgeon said that he heard the pathology report shows low grade for cancer. At very least she will have to have her female organs removed. The ENT surgeon did not want to speculate about chemotherapy. He is going to give the GI doctors my cell phone number but they may or may not call me.

I am hopeful that Katy will come back home by Thursday or Friday and her headaches will be gone.
