Thanks for everyone who added us to their prayers. The procedure is done (firsthand sources say it was as cringeworthy as it sounded), a biopsy was taken, tomorrow is taken off as sick leave. Unless we hear from the lab, a review appointment is scheduled in 3 months' time. No news will definitely be good news. As for the work meeting... well, if a day of sick leave costs the man his job, he probably wouldn't want to keep working there anyway.
