Please if I misspelled anyone or missed a date or diagnosis, please copy & repost. This is our awesome group and as SBKH said
awesome > cancer! Those of you fixing to have surgery - the waiting is the worse - concentrate on the wonders of your life and focus on the positives! I promise after surgery there is such a great relief that it is over! Be sure to take pain meds! You are not a sissy, your body need to heal and rest and you will need to start walking and do exercises. They sent me home with a lidocaine patch (under, not on the incision), valium (muscle relaxer) and norco. Surgery Tuesday, Got out of hospital Wednesday afternoon, 5 hour drive home Thursday. Only used the lidocaine patch and valium at night to sleep as I get sore after being in bed for awhile. Took 3 norcos today so pain is definitely getting under control.
Have someone to help you for a few days, depending on what happens in surgery. I am not suppose to lift-pull-push over 5 pounds until my doctor visit. I also have 5 drains. They are more of an annoyance than anything, but I physically can't reach under the backs of my arms to clean the drains. My daughter is staying 5 days with us. Allowed my hubby to go to work yesterday & get caught up on stuff today. Please don't try to be a hero. This surgery is very doable, but ask for help! Then, maybe down the road, we can return the favor.
On a fun note, my son summited a 14er, Mt. Blanca in Colorado day! He and his wife stayed with me Sunday through Wednesday. Then he headed to Colorado Thursday night. I told him to conquer the mountain as we are going to conquer ours! The pictures he's been sending are awesome. So ready to get life back!
Thanks to all of you! This group helped so much in getting prepared for surgery & getting through it. Feels wonderful to be in recovery!
