Wink Tomorrow's the day

Well the day has finally come. I will be going in for my Lami./fusion tomorrow afternoon. I think I am as prepared as can be...thanks for all the suggestions from this board. I will post in the successful surgery thread when I get back and am able to sit long enough to type. I will be checking in one last time tomorrow a.m. Any last minute reminders would be greatly appreciated.

God Bless each of you,

Lorie

Wink Re: Tomorrow's the day

Hello all, this will be quick. It's been 11 days post op and am doing ok. Still lots of pain if I do anything much. Doc. says to still rest most of the day. I was able to take a shower a few days ago and that is now the highlight of my day. Got to go...can't sit. Thanks for the well wishes and I will be back later.

Lorie

Re: Tomorrow's the day

Lorie,
Congratulations and welcome back. The first couple of weeks are the hardest, you will start feeling much better very soon. Don't make the mistake I made by overdoing it when you start to feel better

So glad the worst is behind you. Can't wait to hear how great you're progressing!

Take Care,
Julie
