Must be losing my mind or I've posted this before and forgot, but I'm going in on Monday for hernia repair (3 I'm thinking) and abdominal repair (not sure what it's called), but I'll be bringing my laptop and I'll keep you posted. For all of you going to surgery and others going for scans and tests my prayers are with you. My love for all of you is so real and I've come to be a part of your family. Thanks for all your prayers, well wishes and good vibes for this surgery and past tests. They have all been embraced with gratitude :)

Hugs! Kim

Already lost my mind. I know you mentioned hernia surgery before, but also can't remember if you told us the date. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and hoping all goes well.

Luv,

Wolfen

Be prepared to keep up on your pain meds. I was warned (many people aren't and are surprised) but the pain post-hernia repair is high. (My primary care physician also had that surgery, and she told me how surprised she was at the discomfort.)

Not trying to scare you - we've all been through really tough stuff, but I do want you going in with realistic expectations. I asked for, and got an epidural for my first couple of days of pain control. Yes, I could walk with it. I can't take narcotics, so this was the best way to handle my pain. You can ask your dr Monday morning. I think mine was added last minute.

Wishing you an uneventful surgery, with an easy, straightforward recovery.

Hugs,
Alice

Thanks for the heads up. My surgeon told me that this surgery was going to be very painful because there was so much involved and long recovery (mostly from inside). Glad you gave me a little more insite into what was forthcoming. I'll ask for the epi but not sure they will give it to me but it can't hurt asking.

Hugs! Kim

Prayers and best wishes for a fast recovery Monday! And if you happen to find my mind while looking for yours, tell it to get home or it's going to be grounded.

I will be thinking of you all day Monday and hoping for a very successful surgery. You are one special, terrific and caring person.

Kim, you took the time to come to George's funeral and it meant the world to me. I just wish I could have spent more time with you. You are one special lady.

Prayers going up for you as you face this new surgery on Monday.

Love and hugs - Tina

Will be thinking about you. I had a hernia repair during my 2nd exploratory surgery. Take it really easy until you heal completely. Easier said than done.
Thank God for laptops and modern technologies that allow us to keep each other updated during hospital stays.
