The apparent date of my surgery is March 31. I have several test to have done before and I need to go on a strict diet beforehand, starting late next week. Suddenly what seemed far off now seems to be rushing at me. That's probably good so I won't have time to fret about the whole thing. In the past four years I have had several surgeries, one for colon cancer, several for kidney stones, two to place and remove the chemo port, Gender Reassignment Surgery (SRS, GRS, removal of a tumor on my left wrist. It has been a very surgically intense period of my life. I am hoping that this LAP-band surgery will be the last for a while. The surgery for colon cancer was the scariest of them all, mainly because the outcome was so uncertain going into the surgery and immediately after.
I'll keep you all updated as things progress.
