So I went to see my Neurosurgeon today. She said that she didn't want to leave my foot the way it was for 3 weeks, until my scheduled fusion date... That it could become permanent and she'd hate to see that happen to a 22 year old otherwise healthy person. She said my options were: to wait, if I wanted to, to do a MicroD tomorrow and then reschedule the fusion in 6 weeks, OR move the fusion up. So she called up the Vascular surgeon right in front of me and asked him if he had any sooner dates. First they came to October 6, at a hospital I didn't really want to go to, but I said okay anyway. Then she asked if tomorrow was too soon, and I said no, I don't think so. SO she is canceling her first case tomorrow and taking mine instead, and the Vascular surgeon made room in his schedule, too, because of the urgency of the situation. It means I won't be having my first appointment with the Vascular surgeon next week, as planned, or my pre-admissions testing appointment at the hospital either... But they said it was okay because I Was young. Thankfully my mom could get the day off on such short notice, and my boyfriend, too... Cause they had both taken off the 16. I'm kind of a scaredy cat. It was different when I had 3 weeks to prepare... But 12 hours isn't much. They think it's the best option, though, both my surgeon and the P.A. He was really happy that my surgeon could get me in so soon. SOOO I will be leaving at 5am tomorrow to be there for 5:30am. My boyfriend is going to pick up the Valium my NS prescribed me for tonight. At least I think so. He's in a really irritable mood and he's being kind of snappy at me. Won't lie.. It made me cry a little. I think it's kind of insensitive of him to treat me like that right now. It's not my fault I have back issues and something that is urgent
I feel like I should apologize, or something. *Sigh* What can ya do?
