Second Surgery

I finally received my letter in the mail from my surgeon letting me know that my next surgery is going to be March 28th at 10am at LIJ. I'm beyond excited to finally see that date but at the same time I am very nervous. This surgery is definitely going to be a lot different then the first. I have my pre-surgery discussion on the 22nd of March to go over everything that will be happening. I am mostly aware of what needs to be done but just nervous of the actual process.
But now I have to go through the process again of visiting doctors to get medical clearance and such and such. The one thing I wasn't looking forward to is having to see my primary care physician for the clearance. I had to change my insurance in order to stick with the surgeon but that meant losing my pcp. I had to find anyone else close by that took HIP. The only time I ever been to that doctor was for my first medical clearance and I did not like it. Granted the physicians and secretary's were nice but it wasn't MY doctors. However, I found out the other day my old primary care now takes HIP so I'm beyond excited that I can go right back to him.
I'm really happy this is going very smoothly. It's been almost one year since my first surgery (March 22nd), which I cannot believe at all. And the second one will be here and over with in a snap of a finger. I'm really curious of the healing process for this surgery. The first one was great so I'm hoping this one will be too. Also, I'm turning 25 April 12th so I'm really hoping most of the swelling would of gone down by then.
But in the meantime I just got to wait...

38 days till my surgery =)
