Thanks to my friends here, one and all...

Hi, ladies! This is my second day back at my own house after surgery on May 29th. After that, I spent one week with someone who waited on me and made me feel like a princess. It’s great to be home though! There’s just no place like home!! My daughter-in-law will be checking on me and running to the grocery store for me, and maybe running the vacuum. She lost a baby in January and is pregnant again and pretty much past the most dangerous stage this time around, so far as losing a baby is concerned, but she still needs to be careful, too. My mass was BENIGN, so that is the really good news!! The next day after surgery, I became totally blocked and could not pass air or use the bathroom, so that was a very difficult and painful process—getting my bowels convinced that they really did still belong to me—as they did not seem to think they did. It took a week or more to get things working well again. Other than that, things have gone pretty well. I had the surgery on Thursday, May 29th and was in the hospital until Sunday. I then had the staples removed Tuesday, which felt pretty early to be out moving around a lot and sitting and waiting a lot, but getting the staples out was a piece of cake. It has felt a little like having the mother of all paper cuts, and my "nubs" have hurt some--or something in there--but nothing I can complain too much about. It is oh so good to be home!! I did it and I'm clean!! I've had lots of help from folks that I will never be able to repay. It's been an awesome experience. Now for the good part--I'M OFF FROM WORK!!! A really cool looking guy came to get me in my pre-op room and put a warmed blanket across me, gave me a big toothy grin and said, "let's roll!" I lauged and said, "I like that!" Thanks, everyone!!!

All I could see in your note was the word BENIGN! I'd been hoping you'd come back to let us know what happened, and I was definitely worried. I'm so happy that you didn't have cancer and that you're now on the mend! What wonderful news!

Linda, Latina, and Ruth, thank you all so much. Thank you for letting me air my fears and doubts here. Knowing you all has influenced my life in a good way. Right here is where I was meant to be--on this board. It's so good to be off for a while. In a way, that alone is a life saver.

Congratulations!! I'm so happy the surgery went well and that everything was benign. That's such wonderful news.

Now, remember to take all the recovery suggestions: Rest, drink lots of fluid, don't overdo it. (For example, I STILL haven't vacuumed. DH is doing that!)

God bless!
