Grover, I had a resection 4/9/09, and it’s not too bad. I was on the way home on Sunday the same week as the surgery. Not much different than any abdominal surgery, although this is a little more involved. Recuperation and discomfort wasn’t too bad either.
You’ll do fine. Looking forward to your giving us feedback after your surgery. Good luck!
Gimme a G… Gimme an R!!! Here come the cheerleaders!!
Go Grover! I can’t wait to hear your post in a few days.
I will have to tell you it’s a bit of a shock when you first try to get up. So brace yourself. I’d never had surgery since I was a kid, and have been healthy most of my adult life, so the first surgery kinda shocked me. But I was walking 1/2 mile in a few days. Up to a mile by day 6 or 7.
I’m also with you on the wait. I was told Jan 20 and have been trying to figure out what’s going on since then. Nothing much else to post until I get thru the embolization on Monday March 5…
Grover, I am sending all kinds of positive vibes and prayers your way for Thursday and beyond.
Thursday at 7:30 AM EST I will be in surgery for a resection. Would appreciate any prayers and positive thoughts that can be sent my way. Never having had surgery of any type, I’m a little apprehensive. See my blog today for my surgery humor, it’s G rated don’t be afraid.
