Hi All:

Sorry to whine but I know you guys will understand. I'm really feeling low post op. I'm pretty much chained to "20 ft." from the bathroom, while I'm waiting out the dreaded D. I try to count my blessings but it sometimes get hard.

Thanks for letting me blow off some steam.

Rich, I can't speak from experience, but everything iv heard says this is only temporary. Its just one more hurdle for u 2 get over. And uv already made it over so many. Ur victories in the past allow for hope with battles in the future. I kno ull feel bettter soon and this will all seem worth it. I'll b praying for u. And this too shall pass....

Richard,

I haven't been visiting this site very regularly and just dropped by and saw your post. Sorry I'm so late in saying hello. Chins up, Richard. You were spoiled prior to this reversal cuz you gained your freedom back and now it has been rained back in. You will soon recover and gain back that "freedom". I will be thinking of you and saying a prayer for you. Please keep this thread updated on how you are doing. I'll try to check in more often.

Thanks Peggy!

You hit it right on the head! I was feeling good, for the first time in a while, just prior to surgery. But, as you know, I had to give the reversal a shot. So, I'll "soldier" on until I get back to feeling better.

I gain so much confidence from the courage others on this site have displayed! Thanks again Peggy!
