    Tomorrow morning (Monday) I am having back surgery. That in itself is no biggy. Where the problem come in, is that I have a bad heart. Sometime in the past I have had a heart attack. Probably during a previous surgery in 1994 where they lost me on the table for several minutes. The Cardiologist said the surgery is a great risk and it is my call, so I called it as I can't take the pain any longer.:( :( :confused:

    Hey, Clerk
    I'm with you all the way, Buddy. Been there and done that, and for those that haven't, thank God. I have had 3 back surgeries and 2 heart attacks. The pain you probably have is some that is beyond imagination. I'll be praying for you.

    Keep us all advised, even if the little lady just sends an OK so we know. God Bless

    Dick,
    Where you have a "history", I would suspect that the surgical team will be looking out for a recurrance.
    I'm going to wish you luck, and say a prayer for you anyway.
