Surgery-Thoughts and Prayers for my daughter (Update)

I don't usually discuss what I consider private matters on public forums, but my daughter could really use all the support she can get next week when she's goes in for a fairly risky operation to correct two conditions called MALS and Nutcracker syndrome respectively.

The procedure involves moving her kidney laparoscopically from her left side to her right side and repositioning her femoral artery to relieve pressure on that artery and associated blood vessels.

While the Surgeon assures us this is a safe procedure that he has done many times before, it is certainly not one that is done every day. Frankly she is quite scared. I know the numbers on all the possible bad outcomes and she should be fine, at least in the short term. But it is still quite worrisome for the whole family.

In spite of not contributing much lately I really appreciate you guys and all that you do to support other members. I could really use your help on this one.


@BossDog ...I didn't know what forum to put this in. So if you want to move it, please do so. If you feel it isn't appropriate let me know and I will delete it.

Thanks everyone. Her surgery is scheduled for the 28th. I won't have an exact time until the day before. I appreciate everyone's kindness and good thoughts. I will let her know that everyone is praying and rooting for her. It will help her spirits considerably.

Again...thank you
Yes. No surgery is really simple, so praying all goes well and the nervousness goes away. Keep us updated. Knives are fun, but nothing in comparison.
