    Pre-Op

    Hey,
    I'm going for the lovely string of pre-op appointments on Monday, and I wondered if anyone can think of any questions that they wished they had asked at their pre-op. I'll start out at Egleston (hospital), then go to the Emory Spine Center for x-rays and to meet with the doctor, then I will head to the PT office. If anyone can think of questions I should ask in any of these 3 places it would certainly help me out.

    Thanks,
    *Allie
