5/12 Surgery feeling wonderful...

My TAH was on 5/12 at 9 am. Surgery went well and I was back in my room by noon. By 2pm that day, i stopped using my pain pump, and by 7 pm I was out of bed (with assistance) and sitting in a chair. Nurses were complimenting me on not using pain meds and my wanting to move around.

I was released from the hospital on 05/14, with a prescription of Vicodin. I took the Vicodin the first 2 nights I was home, and on Monday (05/16) I was cleaning out my refridgerator. Since 05/20 I have been walking 1.5 miles every morning, and EVERYONE is surprised at how well I am doing. I am by no means in shape nor did i excerise prior to my surgery, in fact I am over weight.

I go to the doc's on 06/08 for my follow up appt.
