  • best of luck to you! I am sure you have left by now! Keep us informed when you arrive home...so you are not "alone"!
  • Good luck hun, I already posted under Aug-Sept surgeries this weekend.
    Of course you will not see this LOL

    All should go well, POSTIVE THINKING + us will get you through!!

    >:D< >:D< >:D< >:D< >:D< >:D< >:D<
  • So I came back home today....a day early. Before the surgery the NS stated I would be inpatient until Thursday at the earliest. But apparently I was doing well enough to go home. And let me tell you I am soooo happy to be back home. My bed is just SO much more comfy than the hospital bed. Now I get to start the recovery process.

    Thanks for all the well wishes guys!

    Michelle
  • Awesome. I hope you have a great night sleeping pain free. Did you have the minimally invasive? I was im for 5 days.

    Julie
  • I'm so happy for you that you are home. Best of luck in your recovery.
  • Michelle, welcome home. That is amazing only 2 nights. I was in for 5. Remember to follow all your doctors instructions and don't overdue. Your job is to heal now, so rest, and walk, and rest, and walk. Take care and wishing you a speedy recovery, Sue
  • Michelle that is great news. The Dr has done his bit and now it is your turn and that is the recovery phase.
    One important thing is to remember to put on your blinkers each morning so you are not tempted to do too much around the home.
    With your blinkers on you cant see it. :))(

    Make the most of it, lots of rest, lots of walks.

    Blessings Sara O:)
  • This is fabulous news!!!! Best of luck on continued super healing success!
  • Julie- nope I didn't have a minimally invasive surgery. I have a 6 inch scar to prove it. LOL.

    I was surprised they let me go home so soon, but I felt that I had all the "tools" I needed. I also have a really great support system at home right now. My mom flew in from Arizona and my fiancee is home from work for a few weeks as well to help me out. So all I have to do is relax, heal, walk, heal, and more relaxing....and some pain meds in there too. I've read on other posts on this board how important it is to follow the doc's orders.

    Thanks again guys!

    Michelle
  • WOW GIRL I am so very happy for you!! <:P <:P =D>

    You are doing AWESOME it sounds like!!!!

    2 nights yes WOW WOW WOW :O

    I was in for 4 days. Man the 2nd night I did not even know the difference between 7 in the morning or 7 at night. Hubby laughed at me and said " hunny you had your surgery yesterday morning" "OH I SAID" =)) "Well you have coffee in your hand so I thought it was morning, and of course the news was on" LOL LOL =))

    Yes REST, WALK, REST, WALK, REST, WALK and you shall do fine, cause boy oh boy you will know if you overdid, ask some of "oldtimers" :D
    Keep us up to date hun!!!
    >:D< :* >:D< :* >:D< :* >:D<
