I have single-level ACDF surgery scheduled for Monday. When the intake nurse called me yesterday she asked a number of questions including whether I had any bug bites. I do have a few mosquito bites on my leg that I scratched the heck out of. I told her this and she said they might turn me away from surgery if they are infected. Well, one of them is pretty obviously infected. Crap! Anyone been turned away for something like this? I can't take the angst of rescheduling. Will they even notice it? It's in the middle of my calf. Help!
