I am really [B]THRILLED[/B] to hear you are doing so well
I also read these boards and was really scared, came home after 6 days and did great.
But around the 3-4 week mark things changed. [U]During surgery they always use a long acting medication before closing up the site, it usually lasts 2-3 weeks. It helps to get us up and moving will alot less pain.[/U]But when it wears off is when the hard work begins. I [B]Pray [/B] you continue to be doing so wonderful and don't need anymore pain meds.
Just wanted to let you know why alot of us come back either in severe pain looking for advice or land in the ER not knowing what is going on.
Sometimes a simple inflammation can turn the clock back.
Keep us posted on how you are doing, I hope it continues to be GREAT news.
Just wanted to let you know about the meds used inside during the surgery.
