I asked about going back to work next week and he didn't have any problem with that as long as I was feeling ok after the weekend, and I promised to take it easy. So I'll probably either be back at work next week, or work from home and finish up some stuff. It'll be nice to get back in to the swing of (normal) things again.
He did suggest that I schedule and appointment and start talking to a surgeon. That way I'm at least on the books, and I can get some more information. Apparently the lady that pioneered the surgery that I'd need is at OHSU. I heard she has patients fly in from all across the US to have her perform their colectomies. Makes it nice that she's so close.
