I don't smoke, drink or go out in the sun without sunscreen, but I must confess, I'm a gum chewer. I know you're not supposed to chew gum the day of surgery, but if it's OK with my surgeon, I'm going to start chomping away the next day.
Belleenstein - you coded after surgery? That's horrible. Was it emergency surgery or elective? I woke up this morning at 4:30, thinking/worrying about surgery and my heart rate was over 100. I think my heart rate just went up another 10%.
