Hi there. Everything turned out fine. The surgery went well, the mass was not cancerous and I came home Wednesday. I'm up and walking a lot already. I've almost weaned myself off the heavy-duty pain killers. The surgeon checked in on me and showed me pictures of the mass. That sucker was 2lbs and UGLY! But he said everything was looking good and I don't have to go for a follow-up visit for 6 weeks.
I'm not quite up to spending large chunks of time at the computer yet, but I'll check in when I can. Thanks for all the well-wishes sent my way. I hope you're all working hard and keeping up with your writing.
