Ugh. Thanks for letting me know. It is down as "anticipated lapararoscopic surgery, possible open once in surgery", so I don't think they will actually know which is being done until they are in there. I am probably going to cancel it. It just sucks so much, because if I DON'T do it, I am on PPI's for the rest of my life, which I have been reading can lead to a shorter life span, alzheimer's, etc. And if I DON'T take them, I risk esophogeal cancer.
Can they not come up with any better surgeries than one that destroys so many lives? I don't get it. Why even perform this surgery if it is this risky?
