I spent from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM at the hospital on a preoperative visit. I was talked to, signed a hundred forms(I know my name now), walked miles, was tested, paid money, and came home with almost an inch of paperwork that I need to read and organize, and a huge bag of supplements etc. I also found out I'll have to give myself shots. Boy am I looking forward to that! I met some really nice people. And I'm totally impressed with the way the hospital and Doctor's offices are run. It is Tennova hospital at Turkey Creek in Knoxville Tennessee. There were people there to guide me to every place I needed to go. And they were so nice. I'd be happy to have anything done there. And I'm confident that my experience will continue to be good. I think relaxing is probably helpful when the surgery comes up.
I've been having more trouble getting around. More pain. I'm just grateful that I'm able to get around.
