Still alive even if I refuse to kick.

I just wanted to let everyone know that the surgery went well. Ispent the night in the hospital (yay for wireless net access). We're having some pain control issues, but hopefully that will get dealt with soon. They've been really great about accommodating my needs here. The surgery in and of itself went well, and they used some precautions I'd researched to help keep me comfortable. I didn't feel a thing, spinal anesthesia can be a wonderful thing, especially when paired with sedation and pain control. But around four or so, the blocks wore off and I started to have pain. We got behind it, so last night was pretty uncomfortable. But once I had my normal meds and some pain medication through the IV, I was able to sleep better.

I just wanted you all to know that things went okay. Now we're just waiting for an x-ray and a visit from someone at the pain clinic to come to figure out how to manage the post op pain I'm having. More later.

Glad to hear from you Nickie and happy that things are getting under control. I've been praying for you in hopes that all would go well for your surgery! Thanks for taking the time to write!

I know how you feel
I've been through the same when I got into an injury. Even though I didn't go through surgery, I got chronic pain as a result of the injury, and has since been on carisoprodol (soma) just to manage the pain.

Here's an espresso shot. Hoping you'll feel better soon.
