I'm finally joining the surgery club
Well, I bit the bullet today and called to schedule my surgery. I have had flat feet my whole life and they have always hurt, but I always ignored the pain. I should have had the surgery years ago, but I had to take care of family, work, etc. etc. You all know what I'm talking about. I just can't take the pain any longer. I wanted to have the surgery between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I figured who would want elective surgery between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Was I surprised to find out the first opening he has is January 4th. My insurance changes on January 1st and I just got everything straightened out with them. The scheduler was very nice and she said she will talk to the doctor next week and see if there is anything they can do to get me in before the end of the year. Keeping my finger crossed that they can work something out.
