I just got off the phone with same day surgery. I finally have the info down to the hour of arrival!

I am supposed to be at the same day surgery center at 7:00 am Monday morning! I am glad I do not have to sit around hungry all day waiting to do this.

This has been a long time coming, or so it seems.


  • Glad that it is all looking good for the BIG day - you know what Luke Skywalker says on May the 3rd?

    'May the 4th be with you' - bit daft but made me smile!!

    Hope all goes well & look forward to hearing how it all works out for you.

  • I have always hated it when I wasn't allowed to eat all day and my procedure was late afternoon. Glad you don't have to deal with that. I'm getting excited for you. I really hope the SCS works and rids you of all this pain. >:D<

  • Will be praying for you and that your procedure goes well
  • May the 4th be with you! =))

    Want to know something even better? Things actually!

    My dog is named Chewbacca, My youngest son is Lucas!
    I often would say, "Luke, I am your father" into the anwering machine when he was younger and home alone after school. It was our phrase so he knew it was O.K. to pick up the phone!

    If we had a daughter I would have named her leah, but my wife did not agree to that :( so good thing we did not have one :D

    Thanks for the kind thoughts! this one will do the trick!
    I have to believe this one will work!
  • Boy, I hope the week end flies by and Monday is here before you know it. I agree about having surgery early in the day because that means the Dr. is not tired yet and most likely it is on time because as the day goes on... you know how it goes.

    Good luck with surgery and I look forward to hearing your success story in a few days!

  • Have a great weekend and an even better Monday!

  • I hope the SCS surgery goes well. I know it was a long time coming but finally here! That's great. May the 4th be with you. Best wishes and a prayer for you if you like. Charry

  • Hi Wrambler. I'm so excited for you getting your SCS on Monday! I have had mine for a week now. It has helped my leg pain so much! It has taken away even more of the pain than I thought it would. I had it tweaked by the Rep on Monday and see him again this coming Monday.
    The first few days were a bit rough for me at the pocket incision area but it is much better now. Also, I have Crohn's disease which decided to raise it's ugly head this week. grr

    I wish you the best of luck and all the relief in the world! Let us know how you are doing. We will be thinking of you.


  • Hi Wrambler

    How funny you are such a Star Wars fan & my joke was so appropriate, perhaps it will help you smile a little tomorrow - NO joke now - I really really hope the 'force is with you' on the 'fourth'

    I hope that the day, surgery & the recovery go smoothly for you - will look forward to hearing about it & hope that is is all in & working 'tinglingly' this time tomorrow.

    For now I will 'buzz off' & wish you well, I wouldn't be without mine, I couldn't manage without the reassuring buzz!!!
    Eliza xx :)

  • I want to make sure I thank everyone here for their help and answers in getting me through these last 4+ months of questions and worries.

    It has made all of this so much easier then before when I simply had to worry alone, much more fun to drag you all in with me :D

    I have good solid case of the worries going, loaded up on some Xanax and trying to watch "gangs of Newyork". That's bloody enought to take my mind off of things :D

    Well, not really.

    Do you ever wonder what makes some of us so much more worriers than others? Some of us angry, some of us so frustrated that we stop trying? I pray that we all find an answer and get to live out our lives with a little less pain. I really have my mind set to this working, this needs to be my answer, I feel it will be.

    Wish me luck! I am so glad that this will be early tomorrow morning. Going all day without my Xanax and waiting would have me basket case.

    Of, that is mean, I hear you all saying, "how will we know the difference?" (meaning I have been a basketcase for a long time now)

    Hope all of you are having a good stress free Sunday. I'll be around I suspect.
