Picked a plastic surgeon

I picked a plastic surgeon today.  I interviewed one yesterday and one today and John and I decided on Dr C.S. (Not the same Dr. S as my oncologist)  Quite a few things I liked about him and only one that I did not like and that was his location.  His office is about 20 minutes from home whereas the other was 5 minutes.  Not a big deal unless you have incisions across your chest.  But he will operate out of the nearby hospital.  I have given my general surgeons office to schedule at will.  They need to coordinate a full day in the OR, anesthesia, Dr L, Dr. C.S. and nursing staff.  They will pick a day and I will show up.  Looks like at least one night in the hospital maybe two.

Looks like October 20th is the day the surgeons aligned.

Glad you were able to find someone you like, and I'll pray that the surger(ies?) go well and the travel with incisions isn't as problematic as you invision.

I will mark Oct 20 on my calendar to pray, and will watch for updates.

How are your kids holding up with all of this, or do they know the full extent of what's going on?

I'm glad you've got your date set, and are comfortable with your surgeon. We'll be praying for you!

You don't know me, but i am a friend of your mom's from the quilting chat room. I had breast cancer surgery and elective simple mastectomy 28 years ago and it is the best decision I made about the cancer/treatment. So glad to hear you've found doctors who you like and are content with your decision. You are and have been in my prayers.
