ok....I'm the one that is going to look like an idiot here, but may I ask what the surgery is for? I have had several members ask me, and if I remember right...it has something to do with the TOS (Thoracic Outlet Syndrome) you suffer from....and again, ..if I remember correctly....and now here is the place some of you will get a laugh at me!.....I was thinking you were going to have a rib removed for some reason?
Let us know if you can Sore! We all want to know!
Hope your feeling better today!
Ok!...I was right after all!...here is a post from Sore that I found when she first joined!
Im told,the TOS surgery is extracting the rib, and I'm told its a painful surgery with 80% chance of working. I belive the rib is pressing on nerves and bloodvessels.
