1st Preparations for Surgery

Today I need to start doing some minor things so I can be ready for surgery. I spoke to the nurse at Dr. F's office and I need to stop taking some of my medications. I have to completely stop taking Vitamin C (I take 1500 mg a day because there's been some initial research about the positive effects of Vitamin C on CMT patients), my birth control pills (YIKES!), and pain relievers.

All of these contribute to thinning your blood so I need to stop them immediately so that won't be a problem as we get closer.

Next up...my pre-op testing and lidocaine injection on March 8!
