  • Best of luck with your surgery.
    I had my pre-ops done on August 19th and I'm still waiting for a date for surgery.I saw one of my surgeons team on Thursday and there's a chance I may get into surgery on October 19th.
  • Prayers going up for you.... I have my surgery on thursday the 16th. Lots of nerves right now - how about you?
  • Best of luck Traci and to anyone else that's having surgery in the near future.
    In answer to your question Traci-no I don't feel nervous.I just want to have the surgery so I can get on the road to recovery and have my life back.
  • Good luck to all 3 of you.

    JanieBaby...sounds like you have one more week. Try as best you can to just relax and do something for you. Get out of the house if you can even if it's to treat yourself to a cup of coffee or breakfast at your favorite diner.

    Traci...you too! You are almost there!

    Scott, your time will come.

    The recovery is definitely worth looking forward too.
  • Janiebaby--My best to you, on your surgery. You probably put this in the September surgery thread, but is it soon? Next week? Or, are you waiting for a date like Scott is?

    Traci--will be thinking about you on Thursday, your big day!

    Scott--I hope you can get a surgery date soon. :)

    I go for my pre-op physical on Monday and my final visit with my spine surgeon on Thursday, in preparation for my Sept. 29 PLIF.

  • Yes I did put it in the september thread. Its the 21st I have the op. I have planned a few things to do next week. Coffee with friends and a night booked at a nice hotel with dinner with hubbie to celebrate our wedding anniverseary which is on the 29th sept but as I won't be able to do much its better that is earlier. I'm looking forward to getting on with it and the recovery. Traci ! All the best for yours and scott ! Your date will soon be here

  • Wishing all 3 of you successful surgeries and good and adequate pain control afterwards.

    We will support you through the recovery. :-)
    There are lots of people here who have been through the same and really 'know' what you are going through.
    That really helps to be able to talk about how you are coping, and sometimes we can even offer some advice that will help you to cope.

    I'll be reading to see how you get on. :D
  • Prayers for your surgery on Sept. 21st. Great for you to spend time with friends and Happy Anniversary! Just wanted to wish you well since you have no 'puter. Take care. Charry
