Blood Part 2...NOT
Ok well not exactly..but my life sounds way more exciting when I put it like that ;)
So I got a call from DR M. last week (yes my surgeon actually called me) ,and he decided that doing another blood donation was not a good idea since my blood pressure was low, and I didn't have the best reaction to my blood being taken.. he reassured me that having blood from the blood bank is just as safe (as well as has the same risks)..I am just going to have to trust him on that...so that's that on BlOOD right now. Hopefully in the end I will not need a transfusion, but if I do I feel confident that my surgeon will take care of me as well as the blood bank. While I also had DR. M on the line I figured it was a good chance to sneak in a few more questions about my surgery and to get some more reassurance from him that all will be fine...hey why not..he called ;)
2.5 weeks away and now just waiting..really waiting is the worse part. Have a long pre-op apt on the Monday before surgery..3D Cat Scan, (double check my hipster),a meeting w/ my surgeon (final questions and to go over surgery and cat scan in more detail),meet w/ the anesthesiologist,a physical,register,and meet w/ PT.
Getting close to go time....ahhhhhhhhhhhh!
ps. Got my "Hip Chick" hat in the mail....in camaraderie w/ all my fellow hip chicks..plus I won't have a bad hair day while I am at the hospital ;)
