Thank you for remembering - you're one of the very few who kept up:)

That's very sweet....I'm home...surgery went well....I'm "Hurtin' for Certain!"

You're right - I was out of the loop alright....the Propofol was okay to deal with, but the gas anasthesiah takes it to a whole new level.....and it was a real mess when I woke up, if you know what I mean....totally embarassing....I can barely stand up and having to steady myself to get 'cleaned up.' Lots of residual stuff and the bleeding was steady.

The thing was right there at the DENTATE LINE, which is a very sensitive area to be in...and cutting on that thing has a high propenisty of bleeding. We knew it would hurt badly enough, and my surgeon told me it would.....he's the only medical guy I've found that doesn't "downplay" what the outcome would be.

Pain pills are useless....those are some pretty 'sensivitive tissues' down there as we all know...its hard to walk and sitting down and getting up is an 'adventure.' When the wounds heal up some, I can cream it, but until then I will be dipping into alot of baths to keep the area clean and relieve some of the pain.

Don't want to think about even hittin' the can...that's gonna' be a buster for the first few days...Ouch!

This sure flashes me back to when my journey first started and I had this surgery done before...I'm hoping a couple of weeks and I can return to work....found my foam donut and it helps some.

Best wishes for '12!

Thanks so much for caring and keeping up with me...I do appreciate your friendship:)

You're in my thoughts. I know that area is very very sensitive. Ouch is right! I'll be praying that it heals up quick for you. Perhaps, the pain meds. aren't as useless as you think. They are known for their great constipating qualities. This may not be a bad thing while you are healing over the next few days,if you know what I mean. Just a thought.

It is a good sign you are home, and the pain pills can have some other helpful properties as an "off use" remedy.
The New Year may start of wobbly but will only get better.
Glad you are home and can post. Please keep us updated~

Hi Craig, sorry you're in so much pain. I notice you are still good with the words, so your humor has not been affected. Hubby is back in the hospital as of today, maybe this
means you are both getting the rough days of 2012 behind you and the "rest" of the upcoming year will be great. Take care, Brenda

Hi Craig,

So glad that it all went well but sorry you are in pain, but at least it is taken care of and you can ring in the new year on a new note. It's weird how you were hurting so much at your initial surgery and thought you'd never sit down and then the pain went away and now you are going throug another bout of pain and it brings the memory all back all over again. Feel for your having to go the bathroom too - that's going to hurt. Glad you are back home and will be able to ring the New Year in in your own home instead of a hospital bed.

Hugs to you kiddo and Happy New Year! Kim

I actually did some dental work in between all of that - just for grins, of course:)

They were towing me to one repair shop after the other...LOL!

Thanks everybody!

I remembered you were having roto router work done...., guess it wasn't just hemroidectomy. Whatever it is (exactly) hope it heals really fast. Eat your protein for tissue-repair :)
