Subject: RE: MOAB - Mother of All BS [annex]
Saw my doctor yesterday and the surgeon today. Apparently a carotid endarterectomy is a major surgical procedure. I've been told that for the last couple of weeks, but I now have a copy of the operative notes and am forced to agree that having your throat cut is major surgery. However, the surgeon estimated that only 20 cc's of blood were lost. And from what they said I'm doing pretty well for someone who had major surgery.
The CAT scan and MRI notes say that my skull is intact and that no gross abnormalities were found...just little ones, apparently.
