Had surgery last Monday, came home on Wednesday.  Funny but the pain and tugging was not where any of the incisions were so I asked for a binder that really helped. In the 1980's Alabama was my farvoite band so when I heard they were doing a concert at SeaWorld on Sunday I became determined to make it there and I did.  I used my dad's power wheelchair and all though I think I over did it because I need a pain pill after and last night was a painfull one today I feel great.

 

Thanks for all the support.

Congrats Cindy! Glad its over and you are on your way toward a good recovery.

Glad you did get out and had some fun!!

Not sure what you mean by a "binder" but I used this velcro wrap with magnets used for lumbar support. I used this dry ice block and tucked it inside this wrap and that reduced any swelling/pain so I hardly took any pain pills.

Let is know how you are doing, be well~

Hi Cindy,

You've passed our little initiation with flying colors. As a certified member there are only two rules; Live like there is no tomorrow and tell us about it. Seems like you are off to a good (early) start.

Congratulations,

Gary

I try to be optimistic, helpful and a tad funny...  I am not smart enough to do any or all three. but every now and then I get a smile out of someone.. Cindy glad I got you to laugh.. must better than crying..!!  Heal up.. go kick a ball or something... just don't kick me in the balls... Ooops..  Cool
