Transsphenoidal Surgery got canceled and rescheduled for January 25, 2007. I was so relieved receiving this news so as I could then look forward to enjoying a nice and lovely get together with my family and friends for Christmas and New Years before this life changing event. This gave me a bit more time to prepare myself for the Transsphenoidal Surgery and my stay in hospital. As I have a huge fear of needles I needed to buy some Emla Cream and Emla Patches to take with me as I would be getting quite a few injections or test performed during my stay in hospital. I also had a few things to sort out prior to my admission. My Drivers Licence was up for renewal and this required a new photo. Rather than getting a photo after the Transsphenoidal Surgery where my face may be a bit swollen or there may be some bruising I went a couple of weeks before Transsphenoidal Surgery to get my photo taken for a decent photo.
