Survived my surgery!

    The surgery in my leg went well last night and I am now home in bed. They put a nerve blocker in the leg to cut the pain so right now, it feels "dead" from the knee down, which is kind of weird. I'm gradually getting back some sensation and am gearing up for it to hurt like hell when the blocker wears off, but have pain meds waiting.

    Thanks for all of your support during this difficult week.

      Hi Naomi!  I did see your other thread and am sorry I didn't pop in, but here I am now.  Wow, home after one day?  Fantastic news.  I had hip replacement surgery last year and remember how 'weird' it felt to feel nothing down there, then was sooooo grateful to have those meds near by.
      Good speed and God speed!

      Brilliant news that the op went well. Try to plan some real treats ahead. Write them down and imagine the pleasure you will experience when you have fully recovered. You can tap into these thoughts when the drugs wear off and  it will lessen the pain.

    I'm glad everything's over with and all went good.. Just take it easy.  Surgery is never fun, but if it helps, it's worth it.  I wish you the best..

    Hey Naomi.  You might try watching a really funny movie to relieve the ensuing pain.  Might I recommend "A Night at the Opera", featuring the Marx Brothers, or almost any of the Marx Brothers movies.

    Or you might try kimberlyslyrics teaser hub on fashion nonsense.  There's 5 more to come.  You won't want to miss it.  I promise.

    Best of luck with your recovery.
