I ended up not being able to have surgery yesterday. I had a severe allergic reaction to the antibiotic they gave me - rapid heartbeat, throat swelling shut sort of thing - and they weren't able to proceed. Thankfully, after a heavy, heavy dose of benadryl, I'm feeling fine, but I won't be able to have the surgery until next week.
Thanks so much for the advice - I'll be sure to try to get up and walk around a little after the surgery next week.
