Oh yeah  
They also warned me not to wear any jewelry tomorrow. This is presumably just because they don't want to be responsible for missing valuables. Especially because the same warning is also on the instruction sheet they sent home with me, and is immediately followed on the same line with the bold text "leave valuables and credit cards at home." I think i may wear my left hand chainmail bracelet despite that though. After ten(?) years of it i'd feel kind of naked if i wasn't wearing any chainmail at all. And even with the clips on this one it's not like it's trivial to get off. And worst case scenario, even if it did disappear, it's just stainless steel. I could get another one from the same people for $70.

But the number one reason why i'm thinking of wearing it anyways is even sillier than that. On the one hand (er, so to speak) it's kind of amusing to have them write "Yes" on the appropriate wrist, but on the other, they only do that because on rare occasions they _do_ make a mistake. Having the inappropriate wrist be well armored is not the worst idea in the world :)

Actually, it's a big deal for if they need to shock your heart back on. The anesthesiologist will get cranky with any jewelry you leave.

What avani said. I had my tonsils out and had to take off both of my bracelets. It's in case they need to shock you, or use an electric cautery at any point.

Sounds like good advice here, even though I understand wanting to protect the good wrist. I'm glad there's a plan that doesn't involve you driving today. Take care and fast healing!!
