    Whoops, I totally forgot about this page. I had entered 2/15 as an estimate and never updated. My actual date is 3/9. But thanks for the wishes anyway =)

    Thank you! Unfortunately, my surgery got postponed at almost the last minute because it was found in my pre-op blood work that my white blood cell count was 12.9 (the cut-off for surgery is 10). I was devastated because I've had my whole life planned around having surgery today, and at the point when I found out that we had to reschedule, I had been on clear liquids for 10 days!

    I went to my family doctor yesterday because I have a swollen lymph node in my armpit (hopefully it's the reason for the high WBC). He gave me an antibiotic for 10 days and then I have to repeat the blood work. Surgery is tentatively rescheduled for March 15th.

    Hi JMarie! Thanks for your well wishes. I made it through the surgery with flying colors. Only stayed I n the hospital for 32 hours. The pain is somewhat moderate, but I am dealing with it. I'm having trouble getting liquids down. I can only do small sips. it usually takes me about an hour to get an 8ounce glass of water down.

    Can you share your experience?

My surgery is in 8 days and I just joined this site. The more I read the more terrified I become. I know it is a HARD thing to go through but please kind people, I need some encouragement. I have only told my husband and daughter who are not thrilled I am going to Tijuana but they support me 100%. I thought I had done enough research but I learn more here everyday.. Tell me it's worth it PLEASE.
