SCS Journal: The pre-op period

I've finally got a surgery date! After quite a bit of waiting for the insurance company to decide that they'd approve my spinal chord stimulator, the date is set for January 20. I feel excited and nervous, kind of like I did before Guide Dog school.

I know this device could greatly enhance my life, but I'm not sure how much. I've had the "Juno walk" of sorts, meaning the trial, and yet I remember that the Juno walk didn't hold a candle to the real thing; my loveable adorable Julio. What changes will I notice? How will the surgery go? How much pain will I be in after?

I also feel a great sense of peace about this. I greatly like and trust my surgeon. He actually had the components of the system for me to touch so I understand what's going to be done on Thursday. That's pretty darn amazing in my book. He seemed very knowledgeable and reassuring. I felt that we clicked.

Anyway, that's what's going on from here.

hey Nickie, Good luck with your surgery, I'll pray for you. I also hope it helps you in the way you want it to help you and that you have a good experience! I don't remember much about having my toncels out since I was so young, but I agree with the person that said having a good knowledgeable doctor can make or break the surgery experience. Well any way good luck hun! hugs

Вперед, Фандорин, мы близки к цели.
