Thanks for your kind comments. Those of us who stick around to moderate were helped greatly when we were in need, and felt it was important to "pay it forward"! I know how hard it is to get real information about what to expect post op. I was supported through my recovery, and have enjoyed helping others through theirs.
Retired Seabee, I also was prepared for a horrible ordeal, and was very pleasantly surprised. Researching and getting information on what to expect is really helpful. Often surgeons seem to underestimate the difficulties faced in recovery, and when you're not prepared for a challenge, it seems much more difficult.
Thanks to all of you for your continued participation in the forum! Your threads provide important information and your support of others is invaluable!!
And yes, luv2drive, we're waiting to welcome you to the wrapped club!
