Ok, I did an official count today of surgeries and I am at 19,lol. Today I was scheduled for number 20 in two weeks. I dont have the exact day because I am arguing the location, but it will happen.

My cysts have invaded the openings of my sinuses since my turbinants were reduced during my deviated septum surgery in February. We knew it would likely need to be done but not positive. My doctor is part owner of a surgery center so he wants all his procedures there. I would rather be at the real hospital due to my reactions to anesthesia, his PA agreed but he didnt. Of course he makes more if i have it at his location,lol. So once I get the OR and anesthesia reports from April he should agree to the hospital. Aarrghhh!

He also gave me the TMJ dx after messing with my jaw a bit. Said he will prescribe nighttime valium for me if the PM dr is ok with it. Also referred for a guard from the dentist.

Then the 21st surgery will be on the 28th of June if i agree to the lapband. Then the SCS sometime after that, I will get that date this thursday. I wonder what the record is for unrelated surgeries in a year. I know its not great for my body! But i need to back to school for September if I want to keep my insurance. I am just grasping at straws to feel better all around. Its either keep trying or throw in the towel,lol.

Thanks all, the sinus surgery will be pretty simple, cutting bone, and pulling the cysts but it is painful, but they said my meds should keep me covered.

I have yet to decide about the lapband surgery, its alot for 1 summer, but if I could start losing some weight things should get a little better. As for the SCS, that seems like it is my last hope for consistant relief. Either that or resigning to the fact that I need upped meds and giving up work. I would rather the SCS before I do that. They are going to need to push me out of the door kicking and screaming before I give up work,lol.

My hubby teases me that he regrets not buying the extended warranty when we got together.

Hugs,
Shell
