To the surprise of my colleagues, I went to work today. I think that they thought that I would be off for a while, not realizing that the "liberation" treatment is not all that invasive or debilitating... the trip and the waiting for tests and treatment were worse than the treatment itself.
I've gotten reports that some of my fellow "graduating class" of the treatment have started to see improvements in their symptoms while others, like myself, have yet to note any beneficial effects that stand out from the day-to-day variations in how we feel. I guess we just need to be patient: it's only been five days! My wife and friends say I look better, to which I respond with the words of Billy Crystal (in his take off of Ricardo Montalban): "It's not how you feel, it's how you look... and I look maaavelous!" ;-)
