Cindy, I am from Wallingford which is just south of Glastonbury. This is about a 15 minute ride via the highway. We actually go to Glastonbury to an italian resturant that we like called Max's your husband probably has heard of it. Do you ever get a chance to come to Connecticut?
Try not to get very nervous just remind yourself you are in the best of hands. You have one back and remember you are doing the best you can to make it 100%.
I cannot believe it has been over 2 years since my journey to Europe for the same type surgery and believe me I am much better for it and so will you.

Judy

Hey all, have my bone density exam this morning. Hope there are no surprises there. Did have one a year ago (very early, early stage of osteopenia diagnosed), so hopefully I have not headed south too fast. See this extra crap women have to heal with?! Bone loss, especially in our 40's and 50's, with onset of menopause and downhill slide of our estrogen levels. Can't take hormone replacement anymore,nope, cuz that might kill us too. I guess one must guzzle milk and D supplements till the cows come home, no pun intended! Ha! Report in later....note to self....p/u more ointment for gross lips!

Hi everyone, had my bone density exam today, and have actually improved since last year, which was great news. I was a bit worried but came thru w/ flying colors. I believe that is my last exam/procedure I have to take care of before I leave Saturday for Germany. Whew. I'm actually mostly packed, so now I can do something fun like get a pretty pedicure! God forbid Dr. B should operate on me w/ ugly, unpainted toes! lol Well, that's about it. I might drop in once more before I leave. And I will certainly do my best to keep everyone updated post-surgery. Thank you for all the support that's paved the way for this decision. My only regret w/ having to go abroad is naturally not having my grown children able to come and visit. But I know it's a small price to pay to have Dr. Bertagnoli perform this surgery. Enough said. (remember, my surgery date is moved to Monday, April 16th)
