Hello, party people!
I had my anesthesiology appointment today. The doctor and I went over my medical history, and the sedation/nerve block options for my surgery. It was really important because last time, I was stuck in the recovery room for hours because my heart rate and blood pressure couldn't be controlled.
Unfortunately, my surgeon doesn't want me to have a nerve block before the operation, meaning there's a good chance I'll wake up screaming. I had a complete nerve block for the last operation, and by the time it wore off (the second night in the hospital), the pain had me maxed out on all meds and I had a sleepless night :(
But my surgeon has good reasoning: he needs me to be able to feel my leg for tests afterward. Hopefully I can handle it! (I'm not nervous. I'm not nervous. I'm not nervous.)
In other news, I'm currently eating peanut butter and cheerios. YUM. It's the first time I've put the two together but it's a great afternoon snack.
What do you like to snack on?
