Talking I had my surgery yesterday....

...and am virtually pain free! Except for some soreness at the incision site, I feel great! I did some walking around the yard today and just felt like crying happy tears. It has been so long since I could walk that long without grimacing in pain.
I had the lumbar microdiskectomy and laminectomy.
Praying that each of you here that are having pain will soon have pain-free days!!!
Thanks so much for the great advice and good thoughts. You are

Re: I had my surgery yesterday....

That's fantastic! The one "good" thing about chronic pain is that when it finally stops, you realize how glorious it is to not hurt! You'll never take it for granted!

Be careful and don't overdo it. You still have some healing to do.

Yea you!

Blessings,
Emily

That's wonderful! I'm so happy to hear about your successful outcome. Try not to over-do and follow your Doctor's instructions and you should continue to do great!

You're in my thoughts for continued pain-free days!
