Yea!! So glad it's only a few days away...you will feel SO much better immediately and then about a week of being a tiny bit sore(crampy/achey) from the surgery and then should feel like a new person again with no more pain!!!

Will say a prayer for you for the surgery as well as just relax this weekend...enjoy some movies/tv shows that make you smile..and don't worry about taking the medicine if you need it..that's what it's there for..

Big hugs (( ))

Dear Kimber,

It's funny but I have never been so happy to read that someone was going for surgery. I realize the thought of surgery is scarry and we all worry about how fast we will heal and if their will be much pain, but my friend you have already been through the worst of it. Surgery can only relieve the misery and suffering that you have been living with for the last month or so.

As always, my prayers are with you and guidence for the surgeon's hand. If we don't hear from you over the weekend, atleast we will know you are in good hands and have a surgeon that is willing to help you whenever you need him.

Get as much reat as you possibly can this weekend. Do not try and over do it by thinking you are going to clean your house or tackle some major task prior to surgery.. . rest.... watch TV....pamper yourself as much as possible.

Please keep us posted, as we care very much..

Kimber,
You've been given great advice so there's nothing for me to add but wish you well! I'm so glad it will be over for you soon.

I'm not online much right now as my cousin just had surgery for breast cancer today, so I'm spending time with her. If you don't see me post, know that I'll still be wish you all the best whenever the surgery happens!

Glad to hear that your doc did give you the option of taking some meds for pain until the surgery. No use in suffering any more than need be. Let us know how the surgery goes, will be keeping my fingers crossed for you!
