Thanks Wolfie and all others. Pre-op assessment is just what the nurse called it when she phoned me. I am also getting a phone visit from a nurse on April 1st to go over medications and vitamins I am on and whatever? I also get bloodwork done at the end of every month because of the MTX so I am thinking that might not be necessary if I take them the results? I am wondering what the x-rays were for?
Even though I am nervous I am pretty optimistic about the surgery, just wish I didn't have that long to wait. I have read some people say they have a problem with stairs after surgery. We practically live in our walkout basement which has our home office and family room and I go up and down many many time a day. May have to walk around the outside which would probably be good for me anyway?
