Tina that is great. I assume then that the lump was ok? How did the jeans go? Well I am glad you have shortened days and I hope you enjoy your last few days off. I am sure you will have a good transition when you are looking forward to going back.

Have a great evening!

Wow Tina, I would love to get into a size 3, I wear a size 8 and need to loose 5 #s anyway by walking. We have had some nasty weather here since Thanksgiving.. Hope to walk tomorrow.

Jan, I have been sleeping on my tummy since about 3 wks post op. I just had 4 bandaid cuts if that is any different. I had to lay just right tho. I was never told not to do it.

I went back for an 8 wk. post op today and the dr. asked then nurse for the nitrate, I said "Oh no!" he said it is just a stick with a little nitrate on it.=won't hurt,,and he was right, I didn't feel a thing. He never said why he did it tho and I don't ask questions anduntil I get home and wonder about everything. He did say he would see me in ONE year.. He never pushed on my tummy but guess every dr. is different.

Hope everyone that will be going back to work will be ready to go.

Have a good night everyone.

Ok, I'm not the only one with the jean issue.
Twobtrue, I can't believe the swelling. I am just 8 weeks and I can put on the pants in the morning, then by midday they are awful. I am on my second day back to work and I think I am more swollen today than yesterday. I hope this is normal. I was less swollen a week ago, but then again all I had to do last week was sit around and rest. LOL.
I am afraid to try to sleep on my stomach. I tried on my side, but that was very painful. I am afraid I will hurt something if I don't sleep on my back. Oh well, soon enough I guess.

Tina I'm so glad your post op went well. You are lucky to work with such a good group of people. I'm sorry about the jeans. Hang in there. I know you'll get back into them. I'm a size 4-6 and I got up to a size 9 before my tummy went back. We'll have to have a little hystersister party when you get back into them. Enjoy your last days off.

Joan I'm glad your post op went well. Maybe the nitrate was for granulation.

nikkic it sounds like you work with great people as well. I hope your post op goes well.

I made stew yesterday and we had the leftovers tonight. It always seems to taste better the next day.

I hope you all enjoy your evening.

Hi All,

Tina I am sorry about the jeans. It is the same for me I normally wear an 8 and I need to wear 12 right now. I really hope it goes away, but it does make me worry that it won't.

Joan glad to here that your tummy is fine after sleeping on it. More confirmation that I probably did not do any damage. I am still feeling good but this evening the left side pinching came back. Everything seems to get worse after 4pm for me. I get worse swelling after 4 also hysterhelp and from everything I have heard it is normal.

Cindy stew sounds great. I should have stopped by your place this time!! LOL

Have a great evening Ladies. I wish good sleep for all!!!!

Jan, yes I agree, you should have stopped over for a bowl of stew. lol On cold days like these a hot bowl of stew or a lovely sounding bowl of soup like your dh made is the best. I hope you get a good nights sleep tonight.

Take care ladies. Hope everyone sleeps well.

Good morning
I hope the reason why it's so lonely here this morning is because everyone had a good nights sleep and you're all sleeping in. I have a few errands to run this morning, but it's so cold I dread going out. I have not even started my Christmas shopping yet. I've gotta start on that soon. Last year I did all my shopping online, but what I paid in shipping could have bought more gifts. I guess it was worth it for the convenience. Well, I'm going to hop in the shower and brave the cold. I'll check in later. I hope everyone has a good day.
