Hello my name is Kim and I am about to have surgery in the next 30 days. Just wondering about anything I can do to prepare while waiting. I have cut out pop (it has been only 4 days) but it is gone. Sugar is next on my list going to shoot to get rid of as much as I can, because I am told that those two things will really make me sick. Never a big pop drinker and only diet, but sugar I crave every day. Anxious for the surgery, having all the testing done now and looking at September 30, 2013 for the surgery. My husband will also have the surgery at the end of this year. Any suggestions or comments would be helpful. Trying to read and do all the necessary research.
