At my appointment last week with my Pain Specialist, I found out that all had been approved…ready for the next step…the actual pain pump surgery! So I have been anxiously awaiting for the scheduler to call me.
This evening I got the call! I am to go in for some labs (no fasting required)…and am scheduled for next Wednesday! The time and further details to come via the nurse who will follow up with me between now and Tuesday.
Since today was a busy day, I will rest tomorrow and go in for labs on Thursday morning. That will give plenty of time for the labs to be reviewed and to make sure that there is absolutely no reason to delay the surgery.
I do know that this will be an outpatient procedure…should be 4-5 hours…then able to come home.
Will post more once I speak with the nurse…and of course will discuss my experience with the actual procedure and the process to dial in the medication!
For now? I am just in awe…amazed at how fast all is now moving!!!!
