Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey

I'm going to have surgery on/for a swollen, scarred gland, (I haven't seen a specialist about it yet but I'm scheduled to see one in two weeks) Can anyone tell me whether or not that's going to suck?

Thanks

Which gland(s) in particular are we talking about? Any surgery is not going to be a pleasant experience, but obviously some are worse, ie-more pain/recovery time, than others.

It also depends on the kind of surgery, whether they are going in through a small hole or actually have to make an incision.

I guess I should wait until I see the specialist to find out about it then
It's in a pretty uncomfortable area, since it developed from an STD (It didn't develop from Aids or anything though)
I'm pretty sure they have to make an incision

Don't be too sure, they can do a lot through tiny incisions, just wait on what the specialist will say :) I hope you'll have a speedy recovery.
