I agree; I'd get a consultation with both a pediatric AND adult surgeon. See which you feel more comfortable with once they've told you what they recommend.
And, similar to Chassity, I had complications close to my surgery date as well, so I would recommend staying close to your surgeon for the few months after your surgery. If you have your surgery done at home, I'd get a referral from that surgeon to a surgeon or hospital in the area of your college, just to be safe.
Good luck on your road to feeling better!! :)
