Cece, bring a sweat top and bottom for procedure day. It is comfy on the neck, chest and clavicle area and also the pants on the groin. Bring some larger, or loose fitting, comfy undies too. Forget the red thongs.
Wear knee socks cause it is freezing in the procedure rooms. It is cold for the machines and computers, and really because of bacteria spreading. Cold rooms help kill germs and prevents them from multiplying.
The staff I had in Albany had on three long sleeve shirts under their scrubs, a hat and masks, and with their lead vests on to protect them from the fluoroscope rays they are exposed to daily.
They still had cold hands. I asked for hot blankets, many of them. The little hospital gown is not warm, trust me and the table is cold.
It is such an exciting time. You will be so happy you had it done. I have been feeling like I don't have MS, and this is after 30 years of it. Things are getting better each day. I am now two months out.
Just think in your head that this is a vacation trip you are going on. Think positive and have hope. Keep negative thoughts away. No what if's.
