I had my pre-op appointment yesterday and the surgery will be the first on the list for tomorrow.
That sounded pretty good until they said the check-in will probably be 530am.
The surgery is expected to take 4-5 hrs which should give them plenty of time to dig out a couple of inches of hip bone and graft it to what remains of my thumb then tie the whole thing to my lap.
The hope is that this surgery will provide more bone and skin to create a better base for a future toe-to-thumb procedure.
The surgery will be at the Stanford Ambulatory Surgery Center in Palo Alto and I will be at Stanford for a couple of days before being transferred to... most likely Lytton Gardens off of University in Palo Alto, but that's not confirmed.
I will not be posting for the next month but I will make sure info and PG pics are posted by my family or friends.
Wish me luck.
