I’m praying and pulling for all of you that are recovering from or about to have your surgery. The first few days are the hardest but you will be surprised how fast you start to recover. Also as days turn into weeks there will be times when you feel that you have stopped moving forward with your recovery. It can be two steps forward and one back at times. The way you have to gauge the recovery is in terms of weeks not days. On the days when you say to yourself “I felt better yesterday or even the day before” you need to think back to the week before and reference your recovery from there and you'll see the improvement.

I have been wondering how surgery and recovery is handled by those going through it. Thank you for sharing your experiences.

I know it will be difficult to see the pain my husband goes through with the surgery, but out hopes are that it will be a good outcome.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you as well, Joel. I realize you have been met with new challenges. Meet them head on.

Best to you also!

Another push to the top as this is such a momentous week and what a calendar!!!

I am so excited and scared for ALL of you going through this serious surgery and my prayers are with each and every one of you, not just every day, but at night, and on the day of your scheduled surgery, there are thoughts and constant little prayers leaving my mouth for each of you..

It is a privilege to be a part of this group. I will never know the feeling of having had these surgeries and what it's like to come out on the other side of the junior class, but don't cry for me as I am celebrating with each of you as you become victors in a battle hat NO ONE should have ever had to fight in the first place.

My heart goes out to you all and I am so impressed with the courage of this group.
Thanks for letting me ramble and be a part of this, living vicariously THROUGH each of you as you walk and eat and WIN!

-With all of my heart and love for each and every one of you, caregivers and cancer survivors, on this site...
-Eric

Your words have once again moved me to tears. It is your obvious zest for life that puts such power behind your posts. What I wouldn't give to drag you and the other IV's into surgery with us.

Thanks for keeping us all in your thoughts and prayers and now we do the same for you and all others traveling through EC with us.

Please tell Michelle that I believe she's got an incredible husband. I bet you won her heart with words, didn't you? :)

Just joined today. My husband had surgery 12/15/10. My suggestion to all ~ if possible, stay at the hospital with your loved one. No one knows them like we do. When my husband developed a blood clot two days post op, I was there to notice the change in his arm. At first I was told it was fluid from surgery. I persisted and they quickly checked it out. They were able to treat it before it became a problem. The surgery went well. Recovery was a lot better than we anticipated. He is young and otherwise extremely healthy so I think that really helped. I pray all of your surgeries are successful.

Haven't seen any postings so I am taking it that his surgery schedule is still for tomorrow?

I believe I saw a post late last week that indicated that he and the wife were taking a bit of a vacation before surgery.

Best of luck and prayers are with you, Bob!

Thanks for thinking of me Rose and Terry. My MIE is tomorrow morning. I know I'm blessed that this thing was found while Stage 1, but I'm still scared about the surgery and pissed of that this is happening. I've asked my wife to post tomorrow when I'm out of surgery and in the ICU. My surgeon trained with Dr. Luketich and has done beaucoup MIE's, so I'm confident that all will go well.
