Surgery, the aftermath

Well as noted by a post coming after my surgery, all went well. It was exacly as it should have been, the folks controling my body while the surgeon worked actually listened when I warned tham about my history. They chose a different option for sedation.

So I was outta there at 12:30 on my way home. The doctor prescribed percocet for the pain, but I shredded the script. So far I have taken aleve and while I am not pain free, it is manageable. We shall see tommorow as I can still feel the effects of  Propofol. I will let you know. Dr. Wacks told me to call him if aleve does not work and he will do something better for someone in my life situation than percocet.

I am still a bit loopy so I am cutting it short. Heres hoping all your faces have smiles


  1. Glad you're doing okay... Sure hope you can keep a handle on it with Aleve. My SIL got hooked on opiods after two hip surgeries. It didn't help that he was an aloholic.
    Hang in there!

  2. Hey,
    If you can get through the pain with Aleve --great. That and breathing exercises might help a lot.

  3. This news does put a smile on my face. Hopefully today is a better day. Gentle hugs, honey...

  4. Expecting you to just get better and better ... :)

  5. I hope you're feeling better by the hour! Love you lots.
