This surgery has been very easy

The surgery yesterday was remakably easy. I'm on my feet today. Keep up with pain meds is the best advice I can give. With pain meds you can sleep and pass the first day unaware of the trauma your body took.

Also,I used one post suggestion from another online gal who reminded me to have the satff push the "cool" button on the leg squeezers. At first the staff will tell you there isn't a switch like that on the machine... but it is there, just on the front, not the sides.

Don't freak out, do worry so much. The waiting, by far, is the hardest. The rest isn't so bad. Just keep those meds up, and I mean every 4 hours. Watch for shift changes and have the nurse on duty tell the new nurse you need it every four hours. Worked great for me!

Good luck!

Hi and princess,

Glad to hear that you are doing so well. Your post does not say what type of surgery that you had and are you home or posting from the hospital??

I'm so glad to hear you are doing well. Take it easy, if things keep going so well you get a break, if you hit a bump or two that is okay too. Just don't over do it, and don't look too good or your family/work will expect you back too soon.
