Yippee! I love to hear great stories:) As mentioned...just keep taking it slow and one day at a time...
I guess my main point was that a surgeon should never "promise" something like that...but recovering quickly and healing beautifully is something we should all "hope" for...
Because yes...those of us on this site are the one's where it hasn't gone smoothly and we end up with chronic pain.
And it sounds funny to say that we hope you get so much better that you don't have to be on here! LOL...
We do, however, appreciate the updates to know how you are doing:)
