Hi!
My dad will be having surgery shortly (a few weeks before Xmas) and I am curious to know if there is anything that you needed after surgery to help you along. I live far away, so I can't be there, and I REALLY want to make sure he is comfortable and feels supported. Did you feel like sleeping? Reading? Appetite changes? My dad is being very brave, but as a cancer survivor myself, I know there is probably some level of anxiety that he is not sharing. Suggestions are welcome!!

Teamwink,

I've attached a link to a list contained on another forum that will probably give you more information then you want on what may be needed after surgery. Sure hope this helps, and good luck to you and your father!
