Is there anything that your doctors want you to do prior to the next surgery? My cousin has LOTS of heart problems and last time they put in new stents, she had to go to physical therapy before the surgery to prepare.
Lynn, sometimes I think that it's better to have emergency surgery....you don't sit around thinking about it before hand. When they told me I had to go right up for surgery I didn't even think to ask them what was wrong with me or what kind of surgery! What a shock when I woke up! The surgeon just tells me to walk, walk, walk, eat lots of fruits and vegetables and stay healthy. I would like to get as much weight off as I can before that time. I keep asking the doctor if he can do a tummy tuck while he's in there! LOL
