Welcome home Lauren, Glad the worst is over. Hope the recovery continues to go as expected and that you'll be out of pain soon. Then I pray the surgery does what the Drs. hoped it would so that you can come back to being your old self. Blessing to you, Bee

Lauren, I'm glad you're home and the surgery is over. NOw you just have to do what the doctor ordered. Rest up, recover and take care of yourself. Hugs and wishes for a speedy recovery! Hope the pain vanishes soon

I got home from the hospital today. Nothing could have prepared me for what it was really like so I'm very glad it's over. I have a 6-8 week recovery here at the house. I still have a lot of post-op pain so I can't get a feel for what my situation is going to be like now until that's over. The doctor left me with lots of restrictions, including spending time every day horizontally. I guess that means I get to do a bit of laying down...long as there's no medical stuff lurking around!
Thanks everyone for your well-wishes. Take Care, Lauren
