I had surgery yesterday. All is good so far. I walked twice yesterday. Outisde of pressure above my belly button, I feel pretty good. I am glad I did the surgery. I thought about walking out yesterday becuase I was so nervous. The pre-op nurse told me that I could change my mind all the way up to being on the operating table....before they start, of course. But, I braved it out and now I am recovering. They did it laproscopic which I think is good. They gave me cipro and flagyl during surgery and have given me a couple of antibiotics after surgery............is that normal? I have a slight fever.........like 99. Is that normal, though, with all these antiobitcs? I really do not want an infection.......of course noone does but I am hoping that I can get through this with no complications..........as everyone wishes.
Thanks for this website. It is so nice to be able to post thoughts, questions etc. Thanks@@
