:) Today I finaly got the approvel for my sugery. It is now schedualed to be done on the 21st for this month. I am excited and nerves at the same time. Glad that it will be getting done and nerves cause i do not know what to expect!!!! :?


  • Well, at least you don't have to deal with uncertainty, you have a specific date and you can plan accordinlgy.

    Hope all goes well!

    Kin :) ;) :) ;)
  • We are both scheduled for surg on same day :) I wish you the best of luck and don't worry I am also very nervous and we can be nervous together :D
  • Glad you got your approval, cherrybaby. The day will be here soon. Try not to be too nervous! :)

    Good luck!
  • I guess I was lucky in that I had surgery within 4 days of my MRI reading. I know your nerves will be on end, but the folks here can calm you!
  • I know it's hard not to be nervous but at least you know it's going to happen now. Good Luck and keep us posted! The upside is that you don't have a lot of time to sit and worry, now you can start preparing. From the date I agreed to have surgery and the date it happened was about 6 weeks...a lot of time to stress!!!! I waited so long to make it past my 5 year anniversary with the company I work for, STD was only 50% if you had worked under 5 years...after that it's 66.6%...I held out for another 16.6%.

    Good Luck and Best Wishes!!!

    You're almost there!

  • I am officually jealous.... How sick is that :sick: ?

    Congrats on getting your approval and getting to see the light at the end of the tunnel ;)

    Try to stay calm and relaxed. Everything will fall into place.

  • :) I just want to tell you all thank you. It is noce to be able to talk to people that knows what i m going threw.
    I will keep you all posted on what happens. And again Thank you :) :) :) :) :)
  • Hey Cherry,

    Great news that got approved - and it's so soon that you won't have too much time for getting nervous ;) Just kidding, I know how nervous you'll be feeling but it will all be worth it!

    Take care and have a good weekend, Spicey
