Robertb made it thru and back late Wednesday!
Dear Hidari,CFrizz, Lady, and SO many more:
I did have the surgery on the early morning of July 15. I was on the table by 7:30 a.m. and the next thing I really remember the sun was going down.
The pain, I will not fool you, was HORRIBLE for 2 days!! I could not move at all to get up or lay down or rest. It was sheer misery!! The pain pills helped maybe 10%.
After that it was a matter of spikes of pain. I could lay on my back and it hurt only a little... but moving the left leg even two inches would send a spike of maximum pain!
Then, about 5 days after surgery, I really started to be able to get around a bit. Using crutches and a cane... I could actually use the restroom again!
Three days ago was the start of feeling far better. I was not pain free, but all of a sudden the horrible spikes of pain stopped!
I will return to work on late Wednesday as I have an appointment with a buyer. Maybe Thursday I will be able to answer questions on things like the PLUS schedule. I have been kept entirely out of the loop by my company so I know nothing!
Thank you and thank you again!! This may be a bit poorly written as I am still on the pain meds... but they end Tuesday!
