    Sidney had surgery 2 days after the pre-op, but we live 14 hours away from Philadelphia where the surgery was done and had had all the preop tests (PFT, ECHO, EKG, etc.) done several months earlier close to home in NC. His preop at Shriners consisted of new x-rays, lab work, meeting with the anesthesiology nurse, and updating an MRI to make sure a very small syrinx had not changed (it had disappeared!).

    It doesn't sound as if you have been given a surgery date yet. We had Sidney's before we traveled to Philly, of course, so your case is different. When you go in, be sure to ask about the date.
