Great news to hear about Hannah's surgery being scheduled! I'm sure everything will go well.
I'm sure Dr. Scott will be doing the EDAS surgery? I don't have any personal experience with that surgery so I don't want to give you too much advice about pushing to have her other side done at the same time.
I know with the STA-MCA, Dr. Steinberg didn't want to do my left side at first since it was getting good flow. If the MCA wasn't blocked enough, the graft might not have "taken" because there might not have been enough bloodflow through the graft to keep it "alive".
The same concept might be the same with the EDAS, I'm not sure.
Again, with my experiences, I had no real complications with my surgeries. I won't speak for Lisa, Mandy, Amber... or any of the others, but I will say the benefits CERTAINLY outweigh the risks of NOT having the surgery!
