Oh, you guys! Those are the kind of experiences I need to hear! Sherrine, wow, that is some major surgery. 86 staples! My surgeon told me I'd have 2-4 stitches inside where they remove the cervix, then just a couple on each little hole for the laparoscopic tools to go in through my belly. So nothing really major in that department.
What I'm most concerned about is the pain after, and the risk of infection.... Because I'm on immune suppressants. But I don't even catch colds or the flu!! So my immune systemt works pretty well despite the meds I'm on.
Mamakitty, I sure hope I don't need the pain meds like you! Was yours a total abdominal? I'm feeling encouraged. Thank you!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
