Hiya guys

I am popping in just to let you all know I am back at home from my surgery now and it all went well. I am very, very, very sore and hardly mobile but I am sure I will be better soon. I hope you are all having a low pain day and I send you all very gentle (((((((((hugs))))))))))))
I will call back in when I feel better to type, but for now I will just be reading your posts.

Take care and I will be thinking of you all

     Hello "Lovie!" wink
 
          Good to hear from you! We are looking to a full report when you get back on you're feet, but untill then,
  take is easy, and follow the Dr's orders.
 
       I think I just missed sending you well wishes on your surgery day, but remembered it might be too late, since there is a time zone difference.
 
          We wish you the very best, and hope the recovery is quick as well.
 
      Becareful, and we will see you soon!
 
         Take care,

Sue, glad to hear that you are now back home, that always makes a person feel a little better, being in their own bed and have their own pillows. So glad to hear the surgery went well. For now just take care of you and do as the dr instructed. We will be here when you are feeling better and able to type. Take care.

Hiya lovely people

Just popping in with an up date for you all. I am now a bit more settled at home and I can walk a around a bit now (Well I say walk, I really mean taking a few steps LOl, which is good). I am still finding it hard to sit for longer than a couple of minutes but I am sure it will get better after time. I have the district nurse coming out to take my stitches out this week coming (not sure what day yet) I am not going to like that one bit :-( I am finding it hard to get comfy and have to keep moving positions all the time.

I have had part of my discs, bone and ligaments removed, I did wake up after surgery and had no pain in my leg at all (which was wonderful). I am feeling the pain more now, but they did warn me about that, so I am sure it will all die down a bit once the swelling has gone down.

So all in all guys I feel ok, very, very sore but am positive to get moving and also lose some of this weight I am carrying. I hope you are all having a low pain day today and I send you all lots of gentle (((((((((((hugs))))))))))))

I will be back soon, when I am more rested

Love
Sue
