Frustrated Surgery put off a day and how do we delete topics?

Well I went to the hospital for my ACDF, got preped and ready to roll only to find out they had the wrong anesthesia on hand for me. I am allergic to the main one they normally use and because they want to monitor your nervous system during surgery, they needed to order a special one for me and forgot to do it! So still in pain, it is now in both shoulders, arms and hands but hopefully tomorrow it will get fixed!

I hope that Jeff and Lynne are doing great.

Also, how do we delete topics we have posted but want to now pull down?



  • That's terrible they forgot, but what a blessing it was noticed since you are allergic!
    Here's to a successful surgery tomorrow!
  • Sorry your surgery was postponed, but it was all for the best in the end!

    I couldn't image waiting another day... I was a mess before mine, woke up after barely sleeping on on off a good two hours before I needed to :(

    I hope everything goes great for you, and I hope you wake-up just like I did, with instant relief... I'm sure no matter what, you be so glad soon enough.

    BTW - That happened with me, everything was on one side, but than slowly it started going into the other.

    I'll say a prayer for you, but just remain positive ;)
  • I appreciate your thoughts. another night of no sleep. That's the one thing I am looking forward to the most...being able to sleep through the night again...here's to later today...
  • Doing excellent today. Surgery went like clock work and I feel a ton better. Now one pain issue is resolved for this week! thanks for all the kind thoughts and prayers...
  • Here's to a great, and speedy recovery for you!
