Hope everyone who's recently gone through surgery is doing well. I continue to recover, I do get sleepy around 8 p.m. which is totally unnatural for me, other than that, I'm doing well. My little incision holes are pulling and itching like &%#*, and I have somewhat of a backache...not continually. I'm getting around, and tryyyyying not to overdo. I find it puzzling that my doctor gave me no restrictions on anything. Well, I am drinking a LOT more water, have cut down substantially on salt (which I LOVE so much) and I've cut down on my Advil, which really sucks, because I did take it for the 4 herniated discs. I suppose living with a little pain is better than beating up my one and only kidney. Still waiting to feel "normal"...every morning I wake up and wonder is this going to be the day I can finally feel like myself? I thank God that things have gone as well as they have for me. I was always a very active person, so my semi- sedentary life is getting me a bit down. I'm used to doing everything around the house, and I miss doing the things my wonderful 2 daughters have begun to take care of...Guess I have to have some patience...not easy for a Type A personality....Take care everyone....

    Day by day
    Every day things will get a little bit better. The surgery is the real thing and why I have written more than a few times to those asking about the surgery, that "you can not sugar coat the surgery".

    Best wishes, Icemantoo

    It sounds like you're doing
    It sounds like you're doing very well! My surgery was 6 weeks ago, and I'm still getting used to my "new normal". Take care!
