In May I was diagnosed with tongue cancer. Luckily it was removed surgically with little effect and I don't need chemo or radiation. But I will be seeing the oral surgeon every three months for the next 5 years.
Then a couple months ago I was told that I basically have no left hip joint and I need a hip replacement. I should expect 8 weeks out of work, and I don't have disability insurance. So I have been putting it off, but it's really starting to affect what I can accomplish and how easily I can accomplish it.
Then today I found out that the stomach pain I've been having is a "large gallstone in the neck of the gall bladder" which will probably require surgery. I have an appointment with the surgeon on Tuesday.
Also today I saw the vascular surgeon for a large bump on the back of my leg that is probably a deep vericose vein. I have to have an ultrasound of the leg on Monday and go back to see the vascular surgeon on the 5th.
I've paid my insurance deductible for this year so it would be awesome to get anything I need done- done before the end of November, when my insurance renews and I'm stuck with a new deductible.
But that doesn't seem likely with all the scheduling, and I still don't know what the treatment will be for the vein.
On top of all that, the SO moved out at the beginning of August so I've been coping with that crap.
Honestly, I will not be sad to see this crappy year end. 2014 can't come soon enough :(
