I now have to get the crown taken care of before I go in for surgery as the doctor said he doesn't want to have anything come loose in my mouth or at risk of infections during the operation.

I also have to keep the drainage tube inside until the operation itself.
I hope you can get in for the surgery ASAP. I can't believe you've had to deal with the drainage tube for this long. The good news about those is that they heal pretty quickly once they come out and the scars are barely noticeable.

That's because they don't want anything else building up inside while they wait to take it out. They have to keep everything "flowing".

I'm used to it at this point. I only have mild discomfort when I get up or down, but once I'm out and about I don't even feel it. The surgeon did tell me that I'm going to have another drainage tube out of my navel for about 1 week after the procedure.

Thanks again everyone for the well wishes.

I have my surgery scheduled for Feb. 27th. That's the earliest my surgeon was able to take me.

Everything else has been pretty much the same since my hospital discharge a few months ago. I still have the drainage tube inside and have to wear it until the operation. Getting up and down is still painful and I can't really go outside much since bundling up for the cold puts pressure on my body.

I have to take all of my pre-op testing around the beginning of February since it's only good up to 30 days prior to surgery.

Looking at the bright side, if the surgeon thought it was more serious, they'd take you right away so making you wait is a good sign.

Ugh, I feel so badly that you are still dealing with all of this. I can't believe they don't have the ability to get you in any sooner. I hope that everything goes as smoothly as possible and that you are able to be as pain-free as possible until February 27th.

Your surgery is scheduled way out. I wonder why they're so busy. No matter, the important thing is that you're on your way to getting it done and over with, and on the road to recovery.

James, I'm sorry that you're in pain and so uncomfortable. Relief is (hopefully) around the corner. Just know that you have friends here who really care how you're doing and feeling. Please keep us posted of any updates.

Thanks again everyone for the thoughts and well-wishes.

My surgeon originally told me that for me it's "the later, the better" since he wanted to make sure the inflammation had decreased as much as possible prior to surgery. I would have had things done a little bit sooner if I didn't have to have my dental crown taken care of prior to this.

His nurse told me that he's pretty much booked for the next few months and that he is going away on vacation for 2 weeks around the end of January-beginning of February. I researched him as much as I could online and apparently he's one of the best surgeons around, which is great.

As of now I'm waiting for my team of docs to get back to me on this mornings blood count and to see if I'm ready for discharge. I had my first solid food today which was great.
Hope you make a complete recovery!
