Scheduling my nerve decompression surgery was a 3-day ordeal, but I'm finally scheduled (Sept. 29)!!! I know I'm supposed to be only cautiously optimistic, but I'm all kinds of excited right now!!!

I know exactly how you are feeling. When my date for surgery was finally scheduled, I literally counted down the days until I was going to get better. I think that attitude definitely helps, keep thinking positively. Congrats.

Sept 29th? Is Dr. Perry doing your surgery? He's doing my second decompression surgery on September 28th. I'll tell him he better get a good night's sleep for you. Smile

Take care.

nomorepain, why are you having a second surgery and is it for the frontal pain? Just curious.

Hugs,

Patty

Thanks, snelko and Trixi!

Yes, nomorepain, Dr, Perry is doing my surgery on the 29th. Pre-op on the 27th and post-op on Oct 4th (both at 10:30). Any chance I'll run into you? Good luck with your surgery!

Snelko and nomorepain, did either of you rent the Aquecool mask for after the surgery? If so, would you recommend it? Is it really worth the $400?

Thanks,

Heather
