Final Surgical Consult



I had my final surgical consult today and it went great. Surgery is a go for 5/22/12 at 7:30am! During my endoscopic exam they found that I have a hiatal hernia, which explains my acid reflux agony these past few years. My surgeon is going to repair that as well. I have a higher chance of blood clots due to my hematology disorder so I will also be on preventative shots for a week after too. I'm really fortunate to have a doctor who cares so much about my health during this process. I'm getting more excited than nervous these days!

6 more days :)

I was nervous about the endoscopic exam also. I went in and they gave me something IV and then I woke up and it was all over. No pain or memory of the entire event. I did have a mild sore throat for about 2 days, but other than that nothing else. I hope yours goes as good as mine did!

Thank you Trcyprkr70, I will send up positive thoughts that your insurance comes through.

I applied a Jan 2011 and was denied on my husbands insurance plan, so this year I paid for only me to have to insurance through my work because they would cover it. It's been a long road. Hope yours takes less time.
