just thought i'd post a quick message before i go back to lying down.
I finally had my ALIF, and im doing ok considering. the op went problem free, but i suffered tremendously with abdominal bloating/pain which still hasnt totally gone. Im on the same level of pain killers as pre-op but i feel the pain i have is improving everyday.
cant believe how whacked i feel, fall asleep at any opprotunity.
I'll post back properly in a few days.
There is hope
