Welcome back, and I do hope that you have a speedy recovery from your surgery! That type of surgery can be extremely painful, so please do take it easy and follow your Doctors instructions to the Teee!

I do wish you well and it is nice to have you back!

Sorry to hear about your surgery. I have been told by several that its is a very painful one too. Everyone that I know that has had the surgery says the drs told them to soak in water as warm as they could stand it as that seems to help. If your dr has not told you to do this please do it, it really helps so I have been told. If you were not told this call the nurse and ask if this is something you can do.

Please let us know how you are coming along.
