Hi Guys

Well the OH is going in to have a large tumour on his Parotid Gland removed tomorrow :-( It's going to be quite a big Op with the incision going from behind his right ear to just under his chin, he's going to be in hospital at least 1 night, maybe 2 depending how he gets on! :-(

I think I am more nervous than him...........last time he had an Op was 1987 to have his Wisdom Teeth extracted!
It will also be the first time I have been left at home overnight by myself since 1992 :-(
Its usually me that in hospital or off visiting family!

    I, too, hope all goes well, Julia. Your OH sounds the phlegmatic type. When mine had to go for an op I thought it was going to take a fork lift truck and a squad of heavies to get him there. (These ex-rugby players :roll: )

    I do hope it goes well for both of you.

    Julia, my partner had the same OP about 10 years ago, before we met.
    He had a course of radio therapy after, they never found the original source of the tumour but all cancerous cells were removed and he was and is completely fine ( well... thats's debatable actually, lol) and has long since been discharged.
    One of his neck muscles was removed in the process and that with the long scar makes him look quite intimidating. And he still likes to tell people how he had
    'his head cut off and sown back on again' :o
    Men... really why do they have to blow things out of proportion?!
    Best wishes to your OH, I'm sure all will be fine . x

    Hi Guys

    Thanks again for the support.....you are all stars! :-)

    OH is fine........sitting up in hospital eating biccies and drinking Tea!

    They couldnt take all the Tumour as it was too close to major nerves etc, so have taken what they can............the scarring isn;t as bad as expected, but he's left with rosy patches on his cheek and a slightly dropped lip........thesemight improve, or they might not!

    In all I am just relieved he is ok and will be back home in a day or two!
