Hi Elle Jay,
Welcome to Healing Well! I'm so glad you've found the forum, and have already been learning from our great members! There is a very active contingent of "wrapped friends" right now, so you can have your surgery and heal right along with them!
I found this forum a month or so before my surgery in February 2009, and it was a godsend. Nobody prepares you properly for the recovery, so it's good to talk and share with others who've been through it.
Be sure to ask any questions that come to mind, and we'll do our best to answer them! You can be sure that we'll be here to provide support and encouragement throughout your recovery!
You may have already seen this, but here's a link to my early recovery journal.
Again, glad you've joined us!
