glad i had it done , but have to admit i was scared of any complications, touch wood theres light at the end of the tu nnel now, :H


  • You are now on the other side and that is great.If you had the surgery yesterday you are obvioulsy doing well.

    The surgery site will be sore for a while but the paracetemol usually helps with that. Dont try to be brave and do without.

    Keep the good recovery going

  • Be sure to take care of yourself and do not do anything stupid because you feel ok. I did and now look where I am at. The pain may come back a little. The NS told me that the local anthesia wears completely off in 3-4 days, so don't worry I you start hurting a little bit more. I am so glad you are doing well. Like Angelback said be sure to take your meds. If the pain gets out of hand the meds may not work then.
