I’ve been waiting to post a long list of medical euphemisms. But today, when I came across the last in this list, I just couldn’t wait:
“Well-tolerated” – You won’t die. But that doesn’t mean you won’t suffer.
“Exision cavity” – That hole where they cut out a piece of your breast.
“Re-exision” – They’re going to cut some more of your breast away.
“Infusion Center” – Place where they drip poison into your veins so that the cancer doesn’t come back.
“Cranial prosthesis” – A wig that the insurance company will pay for.
