OK, open thoracotomy on the 16th...home on the 20th... today I walked 1 mile, went to my teams practice and stood and coached for 1 hour.. couldn't throw or move but the bark was there and I feel well with only advil. I drove home. You can come back faster and I know there will be setbacks but today was a good day.

So glad to hear that you are doing so well since surgery. Sounds to me like you have more energy than the young ones you coach.

Keep up the remarkable recovery and tell the team that they have to get out there and win just as you did!

I'm not sure what a thoracotomy is, but it sounds just horrible! I hope it has nothing to do with the thoracic, you can't really remove that!

I agree with Buzz...you ARE the man! Four days out from surgery and you're that active?? Congratulations! You're going to bounce right back!

Glad to see you posting, Chip! Though i've been out of the loop a little, i can't recall seeing any posts from you in a while?

This is great! Excersise is good! I wish I could get my husband to want to do more physical activities. I think it really makes a difference on the body and the soul!

I am glad you had a good experience as I did w/ the thoracotomy....the MDs tend to make it sound worse than it really is. I was digging in my garden a week after mine last year. It does take some time to get your overall strength back so don't rush it but as I said before rejoice in the fact that your insurance and your doctors wouldn't do it if it wasn't a good plan and had great potential of super results. Getting off those pain meds really helps feel and act normal also, huh.

So, so glad that all is going well for you. This was a big surgery, and I know you were worried. Congrats and keep on healing!

all the best, Leslie
