  • Happy that you're through the testing and now all you have to do is wait for your surgery date. Its not far off at all now Joe! I just got my surgery booked and I am having it done in 2 and a half weeks from now. We can be surgery buddies. Anyway, I hope you're having a pain free day Joe!

    Hi Joe & Island - I'm having 3 level ACDF on 7/11/12 & having my pre-surg testing done on Monday - not sure what to expect from that, but we can all be surgery buddies if you're up for it! :)

  • Hey Joe! What day is your surgery scheduled for?
    My pre-op appt with the neurosurgeon was today (I really love that man - brilliant, skilled, top in his field, and a great bedside manner all wrapped up in an easy on the eyes package :-) ), pre-op clearance with the GP is scheduled for Monday & then a visit to the neurosurgical/spine ward I'll be on after they release me from ICU, and then it's off to pick up the future MIL from the airport & have a "sexy & mysterious" scar put on my throat :D
    We're all going to have great, successful surgeries and easy recoveries!

  • That's awesome Joe! I was originally scheduled for the 10th, but it got pushed to the 11th due to a scheduling conflict & the length of my surgery :)
    All of my testing should be done at the GPs office across the street from the hospital I'll have the surgery at, but not sure if I'll meet the anesthesiologist or not. Did you get to see the neuro/spine ward you'll be on, or will you not have a hospital stay?

  • I'm having surgery on 2nd floor of hospital and then I will be sent to a room from there. Cooper Hospital is also one of the best trauma centers in the US so everything is in same complex. Pretesting was in a different bldg but across street from hospital. Joe
