Ahhh, yes. I remember that thread of posts. It's extremely frustrating--especially when you have a date you're bumping up against. I wish you the best of luck with both surgeons. Ask lots of questions, and go with the one with the most experience, regardless of the scheduling. Your long term outcome is the most important one, so choosing the best surgeon is important, as I'm sure you already know well.
Let us know how it all goes.
