Oh, Karen! I have been thinking of you.
I am glad you went the IV fluid route.
And I am glad you dodged the cancer thing! Great timing!
I hope someone responds abut the back pain and prostate. I know that I had some urinary issues after surgery, and I imagine it's all more complicated for a guy. (As my husband says, "we men of a certain age."
Hi Meg!!! We are glad to have this surgery behind us. Definitely recommend the IV fluids to anyone having this surgery. The pain from the surgery was bad as you well know but the back and prostrate pain has not let up. He cannot remain upright or sit for any length of time. Laying down flat on the bed seems to temporarily help with the pain so he does this often throughout the day.
How are you feeling?
