    Good for you, Heavenlyrae!!  Sometimes, it's the anxieties BEFORE the appointments/procedures that are actually the worst part, huh?

    Hope you are relaxed and are having a great day/night yourself!!:)

    What kind of surgery did you have and how long ago? I had a laminectomy/discectomy 18 days ago and at this point my biggest complaint is back pain and stiffness (right at the top of my hip). There is leg pain too but it's nothing compared to the back pain.

    I'm actually seeing my n/s today to have my staples removed so I'll ask him.
