Well, I have to have a hysterectomy. First of all, I am not happy about the cost of the surgery, or the amount of work I will miss in the healing process. Second, it really makes me feel good when I inform a coworker why I am going to need 2-6 weeks off of work, and he replies, "I have always thought that you were a man. Now, what I say will be closer to the truth." I work with such sensitive guys. At least after he said that, he apologized and then he offered any assistance I may need during my healing. I think that I will call him any time I get a craving for something, just to teach him a lesson.
Oh well, there are some positive aspects of the surgery, but what a bummer.
