It's very possible that's what they meant. I unfortunately was not at the pre OP appointment this time, I couldn't take the time off work so Mathias went with his mom. It just made him nervous that maybe he should be expecting more than what surgeons and doctors have been telling him, and since he was getting concerned, I started to follow suit since I wasnt there to ask those specific type questions. Maybe that's all they meant. I'll hope for that.By "home nurse," did they mean someone who comes and stays for hours and hours, or someone who just drops by? After I had my surgery, Kaiser sent a home nurse for a few brief visits, just to check my INR, check how I was healing, and review my medications. Maybe that's all they meant.
