Elective surgeries have started again where I am and I’m scheduled for Thursday. I’m not afraid of catching the coronavirus, but I’m nervous because VSG surgery is such a huge lifestyle change. I hope I’m up to it. I’m also nervous because we’re supposed to be social distancing and since I live alone, I’m not sure how to handle that. Do I ask the family member who is taking me to surgery to stay with me or can I stay alone once I’m home? I had everything planned out before the coronavirus pandemic hit. It threw a wrench into my plans.
