I juat arrived home from the hospital and want to fill you in on my progress. The awake intubation(having the breathing tube placed in the wind pipe without anesthesia),was not fun, but the rest went as planned.I walked the hospital halls the morning after surgery. I'm not saying it is psinless, but my sciatica is gone and I'm happy I did this. I know there is still a long time to total recovery, but The hardest part will be keeping from bending and twisting (I'm a real klutz! and I drop everything).
Everyone please pray that dkayj (surgery on 4/6/12) has as good This forum as been very helpful
