Great idea; I remember one of the sisters told me to use ginger ale and tea combined to help the gas pains.........your idea sounds good, too. Those jabby pains. OUCH. I hate when it feels like a pin or needle just poked me and ya never know when it's going to do it, either. Yes, a good evening to all!

Ok. I listen to all my hystersister ideas. Before surgery, I got the peppermin tea & already had gas X. It is ok, but maybe I need to take more that 2 gelcaps a day. I think that anything HOT, helps gas anyway. Now, beano I haven't tried, but will get some if Italy says it works. I was fine till about Saturday when I had that pizza with everything. My dr. had already told me no pizza, beef, ruffage for 7 days. I waited 10 before I had pizza. I also had an angus burger at the cook out friday. So today just eating soft foods.

Crunch, you back at work already? I mean if I didn't have any sick time accrued I could be ready by Wed. That's 20 days after surgery. I work for the school system (administrative offices) We go 12 months. But it is very slow in the summer since most of our 50+ schools are closed (few open for summer school) I am mainly just tired. My bowels are sure moving today though, but I am gassy. U girls, gonna have me go broke, running to walgreen's..........smile.

Wow, I am imoressed by all you ladies getting out and doing some fun things! I must admit, having to take trips to the hospital every other day to have my incision checked and redressed (staples) is wiping me out. Of course, I live in a 3rd floor (no elevator) apartment in India, where every journey outside is a bumpy adventure!

I look forward to a trip out to just spend time with friends, but that is just a little beyond my reach at this point!

Does anyone know how many seasons of West Wing that were created? I am trying to put together a 'care package' list for my family, and I have enjoyed the first season of that show on DVD. If you have any other suggestions for TV Shows that are out on DVD, please let me know!

Hi, Jennice. Good you're checking w/the doc on your questions. Re the fever I remember I had a lowgrade fever of 99.2 or 99.3 and the nurse who called me said, 'good, it means your body is healing.' My fever was the first week, though, so it's good you are checking it out since we are in the third week now...........Take care........glad you are getting some rest! E.

We are gonna cut up the rest of the strip steaks that are leftover and make steak salads w/yellow and red peppers mmm.......

Went to my mom & dad's pool today with my 18yr, I did put spf30 just over incision, they couldn't believe how you can barely see my incision and it's vertical and my swim suit bottoms are very very low and tie together on both sides, ...I didn't totally get down under the water but got totally soaked and laid out alot mmmm relaxing after my rough night LOL...

Ok, gemini3. I had 2 glasses of champagne for my anniversary on Thurs and got sick. No meds that day. I am down to half pill daily now anyway. I am tapering off. But when I read what u said about everything still working, all of us girls were like wow.
My BF and I got a little carried away saturday night after pizza/beer. He wanted me to ask the Dr. on friday about oral and I didn't. I will have to wait to see if all works in 4 more wks. Maybe longer. I told him today when he was counting down, not to bank on 4 wks. I don't care what the dr. says. We have been dating for 1 yr and can count the times because it hurt too bad. He hung in there so he can wait a little while longer.....Sometimes, I think that he has been toooooo patient. At least I can say, he and I didn't do it but a # of times.

Oh yes, but I am only 10 month and it is SO slow. Not sure why they have me there. I guess I am a new person to listen to complaints. I opted for only 4 hours per day this week for a few reasons:
1) because I could
2) milking the surgery excuse
3) nothing to do really
4) wasn't actually ready to go back.

Wrote up a couple of work orders for maintenance (I think that was the last thing I did in June as well).
I hung a shelf in my office, framed a poster for my wall, set out a couple of accent lamps and put up 2 coat hooks. Trying to make my office look "homier" so I won't hate being there so much....not sure it's working.

I am kind of upset this evening. My mil passed away in April in Houston. At the time I was unable to go (was helping dad go through my mom's things who we lost last September). They are having an estate sale Aug 17 and want us to go get what we want. My sil called me from NM and wants me to go with her but after looking over the expense and the fact that I would have to take 2 days off work only 2 days after school starts I had to tell her that I couldn't. I feel just horrible because there were things my mil wanted me to have and now sil will have to go alone to face her demon sister. I am hopeful that sil will pick the items I was to have for me then maybe dh and I can drive to NM to get them. Just making me a tad sad this evening.

Okay, I shouldn't lecture but I'm going to. You are old enough to know better Gem. Controlled substances are not recreational drugs. Never share prescriptions AND never mix with drinking. Off my soapbox.
I watched my mother suffer through almost 30 years of pain pill addiction and die very much in pain because of it.
