Just had my first pill (and my 2nd, and 3rd, and 4th, and, yes, 5th) today after finally nailing down the date for the surgery. February 21st. No obvious side effects yet!
For this surgery I'll get to sleep in until...oh...8:00 before heading over there. My mom and first-born sister are coming out Sunday to take care of me. I still have some questions for the surgeon, and am hoping I'll actually get a chance to ask them before actually going under the knife.
