Pre-Op Testing

Did my pre-op testing this morning at Baptist Hospital East. I am now set for surgery next Wednesday, 9:00 a.m. at BHE. Dr. Steven Reiss will be performing the surgery.

The surgery entails drilling a hole in my skull (behind my right ear) and removing a piece of my brain for testing. The testing part is two-fold. They will look at it and see if they see anything (pathology) which will be quick. They will also send it to the lab to culture, which will take 6 weeks.

My Health Update. I saw Dr. Steven J. Reiss today, my neurosurgeon. We scheduled a biopsy of my brain for next Wednesday. I go in tomorrow for pre-op testing.
