    Hello everyone! My name is Alison I am 29 years old and I am in the beginning stages if planning my surgery out. I have my stress test on Saturday and once the surgeon gets the results they will call me with a date! I'm so excited yet I don't want to get too excited...in case I can't get it done. But I'm ready for this new chapter in my life! I hope you are all doing well!

    - Alison

    I felt the same way, I was afraid something stupid would happen and I wouldn't be able to have it done, I worried for nothing, and I'm sure you are doing the same, good luck, and any questions you have , someone will help you out

    That's great, I was also worried about that too, they didn't notice I had a screw loose, and gave me the green light lol
