thank you so much for keeping us up to date - we learn so much from one another, and I can't imagine how you managed your last post, but when you feel a little less often, please update us...
May you heal fast now that you are out of the hospital!

Hi Doug,

I can't believe you've already posted a message. I thought 5-6 days in the hospital was the norm. Yikes - I guess I had as much 'fun' as you did post-op. Hope everything heals beautifully and the pain is manageable. I know those first days are tough.

GG

you are so right about us learning so much from each other. I have only been here for 12 days and finally feel that someone else understands I am NOT a druggy. We are all in pain for good reason,no one can dictate how much pain some one else is in.
