So my meeting with the surgeon up north went GREAT. I really really liked him and his staff! He's program is a little different and he is going to be requiring me to do a few more things I didn't have to do pre and post surgery but nothing I can't handle. Ok..I may be a little grumpy two weeks prior to surgery - will be on a liquid diet. :P Bleah..but worth it! He'll also want me to stay overnight after surgery. Very nervous about that..never had surgery (except carpal tunnel) and never had to stay overnight at medical facility as a patient before. In fact hosptials and stuff make me nervous.
Anyway..I'm excited and nervous all the same time. They are submitting my paperwork to insurance. I should hear in a couple of weeks about whether I'm approved. After that I'll have one more trip for pre-operative consult before back up for the sugery! They think we can still do this by the end of March! :) I'll still have to go back up for a check up every month for a year but..again all good!
