Welcome Jerrio, and as already expressed earlier, sorry that you're on this ship with the rest of us. Like Bill (Jetguy) says, "I'm sorry that any of us are on it".
You've got time before your surgery to really jump into this forum and ask anything at all. These folks are great! Heck, I've found more comfort, support and encouragement on this site that I have with my own support group.
You've already made one of the biggest decisions - your method of treatment. That should ease some of the burdeon of dealing with this disease. Good luck to you as you progress in getting ready for your special day.
