Preparation before spine surgery
Friday, February 15, 2013
The following is what hubby has to do before going for his spine surgery on Feb 27:
Feb 12 1:15pm Hubby's appointment with Dr Roh, neuro-surgeon at Rockford Spine Center - going over MRI results done on Jan 28 and what needs to be done;
Feb 15 3:00pm Rockford Memorial Hospital for testing, lab work, EKG;
Feb 19 10:00am Dr Glovsky, hubby's doctor, at Rockford Health Physicians for history and physical;
Feb 21 8:00am Dr Roh, neuro-surgeon at Rockford Spine Center for an appointment before surgery.
I thought that was it before the surgery but I guess not. We received another phone call last evening that hubby needs to schedule one more test, Dobutamine Stress Ecoh. My hubby and I are wondering is this really necessary as it would definitely increase the cost of this surgery. Would greatly appreciate any comments on this matter.
They will inform us of time of surgery on Feb 26. That is all for now.
Hope everyone have an enjoyable weekend.
