Hi All,

I'm going for my pre-op on Tuesday. I was wondering if any of you had any questions you wish you'd asked at that appointment. I already have some ideas, but I know I always think of what I should have asked after the fact.... I'll be sure to post a what to expect at your pre-op later in the week (finally I get to provide information rather than just ask for it!!!).

Happy almost thanksgiving :)

I made sure that one person would be able to be with me in my recovery room at all times (including overnight). I confirmed what vitamins/supplements I could take and should not be taking (I quit taking fish oil, and increased vitamins A and C). I asked about having my CD player in the op with me - they said as soon as they hooked up all the spinal cord monitors, I wouldn't be able to have anything electronic. I was glad I asked, so that I wasn't counting on it as my security blanket the day of.

Everything was explained pretty thoroughly during my pre-op, so I just had a few questions that weren't already covered.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too!
