Congratulations! You're on the path to a better quality of life. I know just how you're feeling, because four years ago I was looking forward to surgery in February as well.
Be sure to ask any questions that come up. It's obvious that you've carefully chosen your surgeon, and that's extremely important, as you well know.
Here's a copy of my early recovery journal, in case you haven't run across it. It may help you get some tips or ideas for your own surgery and recovery.
Again, congratulations and best wishes!
Happy New Year!
