Oh everyone - I can't say how much your love and support means to me.
I had surgery yesterday morning and it was truly, truly horrendous. I remember last time this doctor did surgery on me, he was a bit quick off the mark in not waiting for his local anaesthetic to work properly, and talking to one of the nurses last night, he's certainly developed quite a reputation for it. Let's just say he lived up to his reputation
Everything he did initially, I felt. It's not often that I cry with pain, but the pillow they had for my face was soaked and then some. I'm not sure what is going on with my leg either. When he was feeding the introducer in yesterday, I was getting searing pain through my lower back, hip and down the back of my left leg, but I don't think anyone listened when I tried to tell them that. That pain has got more persistent through the night and I'm realising this morning that my left leg is also weaker than it was :(
I haven't seen the doctor this morning but he's supposed to be in some time today. My tech's been in twice already though, and at least looks like we'll get some good stim coverage.
My love to you all
