The thing I am worrying about most is probably not what you would think of. I am suffering from Hot Flashes from Menopause and am afraid it will only get worse after the surgery. My Surgeon wants me in a soft collar for 3-6 weeks and I cant stand even a necklace around my neck. Any unnecessary clothing has stays in my closet!! A neck brace, really?? Ugh, I'm sweating already. I came across this neck brace online that is supposed to keep your temp steady. I wish I saw it sooner, I would have asked my Dr. I'll try calling friday. I spent the past week and half running for clearance from Cardiologist and primary Dr and a liver function spike tossed me at the gastro specialist today to get cleared for surgery. So getting back to the surgeons this week was impossible.
Here's the website, I promise I am NOT trying to sell these things. I am flashing as I sit here. I cant imagine having a collar on too.
Thanks in advance for any and all responses.
