Surgery Canceled for Now

Last Update: January 22, 2014

Hello, my WA family. I have been around, but not too active lately.

I had my pre-op yesterday for the hip replacement surgery scheduled for next week. It turns out I am a very high risk for surgery at this time. There are risk factors that cannot be changed which means I will have a spinal instead of general anesthesia However, other risk factors can be lessened with hard work. Need to control stress, blood pressure and Diabetes. I am very disappointed because I was looking forward to getting rid of the pain. (Not allowed to have pain meds during this time period). I will just have to do what I need to do to make surgery safer for me.

So, am I going to give up on WA? NO! Bite down on a pencil and proceed.
