After four and a half hour drive, I’m here at preop. Such to do about it all. Good to know that they cross their “t’s” also got put into a study for anesthesia care. The study is to see if eeg monitoring can help with delirium after surgery or conciousness during surgery. I don’t want to wake up during, for sure!
The 30th is just over a week away now. My anxiety level is beginning to rise, just a little. After the preop visit I go to see the surgeon. I’m going to ask him about a variation of the surgery called a cecorectal anastomosis vs a ileorectal anastomosis. I hope that he will talk to me about it and whether I’m a candidate for it. I suppose if he won’t at least talk about it, I maybe should reconsider this procedure.
Ok so all is set up for the 30th. We talked about the cecorectal anastomosis and he explained why he’s doing the ileorectal anastomosis to my satisfaction. While I learn a lot from my fellow sufferers, we are all different and require treatments. I’m glad that I’ve had a broad base of information to draw from. I am confident that this is what I need to do.
