This is my daily journal to my eventual perfect smile and Apnea free life. It logs my surgeries, and daily progress.

I go see my OS on Tuesday. I have to bring a list of all the medicine and supplements I have been taking. I made a list today so I thought I would post it so that if it makes a big difference maybe someone else might benefit from it. This is all based off the info my doctor gave me for pre/post surgical prep, as well as the one listed in my links for surgical supplementation.

    Wow! Do you see a naturalist? I'm concerned about how the vitamin A might affect your bones. That's a lot of vitamin A. I wouldn't do it. Is there more in your multi-vit?

    Sorry about your hooks, too. Can they be angled more inward?

    You're getting so close!

    Thanks STeph,
    I sent you an email, well actually more of a book regarding the vitamin A stuff. LOL..

    The hooks are irritating but survivable. I mean after that freaking RPE how bad can they really be? Nothing compares to the torture of that thing!

    I'm ready! not too nervous yet, just ready to move on with it all. I have a conference in Vegas at the end of June (1 month post op) I'm determined to be ready to go, and swelling free by then. So at least I have something to work towards! That is what I'm focused on.

    Hey if you or anyone else can think of some good questions, or things you forgot to asked your OS that you would've like to have known. Please send them to me. Im' trying to put together a list of questions and right now I don't have too many.
