Just a quick update:
Pre-op Daddy's pain level at 12+ (0-10 scale). He could not move without extreme pain in his back and ribs.
1 hr post-op; in recovery room: P/L at 7
3.5 hrs post-op; in overnight room: P/L at 4
He did have to take one Percacet for breakthough pain after a rather long coughing episode; otherwise, He is "Feeling like a new man!", in his words - not mine.
We are hopeful this will help him (and us) get through the next round of tx. Next appt 5/24 for the END - then follow-up with radiology oncologist on the 31st.
Feeling better about Daddy's condition,
