Re: ? about a cold knife cone/biopsy
Hi Clueless! I've had 2 CKC's - one last December and the second in March. With the first one, I had surgery on Monday (with a D&C), went back to work 1/2 day on Thursday. I should have waited until Friday, but I could have gone on an EASY, RELAXING vacation a week later. I would just with your doctor first, though. You can't pick up anything more than 5-10 pounds for at least a month. Riding in a car for a long distance may be uncomfortable. However, mine really wasn't bad at all...not much pain (I only took pain meds the first day). The only thing I struggled with was taking it easy. With my second cone, I was out of work 3 weeks because I also had 25 pelvic lymph nodes removed, but I still felt pretty good after about a week.
I hope you'll be fine for your trip!
