I am glad you are home and doing ok. I am sorry they cut you that big. i know my experience isn't like yours but I had my galbladder out over 22 years ago and they cut me and it was about 12 inches too. I can still remember how painful it was. I hope they don't have to cut me very big this time. I am scedualed to have a total hysterectomy on the 23rd. I will be praying for a quick recovery for you.
So glad to hear from you and to know all is well...or as well as it can be. It sounds like you had quite a round. So, what does the other guy look like?? :) You know the drill...rest, rest, and rest a little more! Stay in touch as you feel like it, and definitely let us know the plan when you have one. Sending lots of gentle hugs your way!
I'm glad you're up and about. I wish I knew you were at Mercy that's not too far from my work on Baltimore and South Street. Welcome to the 12" club. I'm not sure I could have worn a bikini before my surgery but definately not after. Rest up and let me know if you are coming back to the city for future check ups. Lisa
Yippee! Yahoo! You're home and doing great, just what I've been asking for. Truly, I'm thrilled the surgery went well, they were able to get in there and get rid of the little alien. I always have to wonder how they put back the squiggly parts after they've stirred them around.
You know how it goes: the outside may look good in a week or so but continue to take it easy. The inside doesn't heal as fast.
Giant hugs to you.
I have been thinking of you all weekend. SO HAPPY things went well!!!!! Rest, relax, heal and get ready to get rid of this nasty beast!!!!
Hey there, kid! Thank you for touching base so quickly.......good news is always welcome!
Resting isn't always easy with little grandchildren around, but , alas; rest you must!
You take care.....you really sound good.
Glad all went well with the surgery. Heal fast. You sound ready for anything!! Marie
So glad to hear you're home and it's over (almost). You sound like your spirits are high.
Onward and upward!
I am so happy you are at home. Please remember to do everything doctors say.....and rest---rest---and get some more rest. I don't think I am saying anything others have not already said. It was good to come on here and see that you posted. I am sending you cyber ((hugs)) gently though....Post when you can. Love, Dawnlyn
I am shocked at your turn of events. Take care of yourself and let us know how things are going for you. I am so sorry you have to go through this again.
I am really surprised at how good I feel, with the size of this incision I really thought it was going to be much worse. And for the most part, I am surprised on my mind and spirit, it's as if I am very calm, and on a very rare occassion my mind wanders and thoughts pop in and out of my head like, what happens after I finish chemo, when will it come back, what happens if it comes back even faster next time, ~~~~~.
Oh well I go back and see my gyn/oncologist on the 16th, then will schedule to see a new oncologist real close to my home, and will assume we will jump into the getting chemo started, no use in prolonging it. Well just wanted to say HI to everyone.
