Well, surgery went fine for the most part. Fortunately I didn't have to stay at the hospital. My surgeon and anesthesiologist and nurses were all really cool. They said that it would take about a week for me to start feeling like myself again. It was also going to take some time for the soreness to go away afterwards. Something like two to three weeks for mobility and strength to come back. I was really hoping to be up and running by today, literally. But it is what it is, so for now I'll take my meds and try to relax. I overdid it the last two days by trying to do too much so I'm going to behave today and tomorrow and see how I feel Saturday. I am alive and well though and looking forward to once the healing process is over and hopefully can get off all the meds and such. That would be great.
