Hi Everyone, Finally, I did it!!!!

My surgery was a success, when I woke up from my surgery I was shivering like a wet Chihuahua, lol so much that it made the pain worst. it lasted almost an hour after I woke up. Doctor said it was the anesthesia wearing off my body.My hubby brought me a stuffed animal and that me me feel a bit better. the pain was horrible!!!


post/op day 4 feeling much better ,Now taking Tylenol twice a day to reduce the pain. Pain has reduce about 30% from day of surgery. I'm feeling alot pressure on my drain hole, lol you know what i mean. i did get a bit of a cough. it hurts much less now when I cough I'm moving around the house and doing a couple things around the house. My hubby gets mad of me doing things, but i tell him its OK.I'm not forcing myself.
I'm eating better and feeling much more energetic.

Photos are courtesy of my dear hubby, lol
I'm planning on updating in three days with photos of me standing up.

thank you everyone for your support

So I had my first setback today. As I got up to go to the bathroom I accidentally pulled on my drain hose and I felt like I pulled it out about an inch, it hurted like hell

the drain keeps doing its job but I just want to make sure I will be OK
THANK YOU

Damn drains.   If it is still functioning and showing output I would not worry.  They place those in there pretty deep so you should be fine.  

My hubby pulled on one of mine day two post op while giving me a shower.  It hurt like hell but I never had any problems with it.

looking good!

ms,
I had my surgery planned for early next year, but after we visited Dr Boris we decided to move forward and schedule it as soon as possible. Me and my husband have good credit score so it was easy to finance the loan.
The payments are a bit high but we figure it was like buying a good used car. Hubby is paying for my surgery so that motivated me even more. He got 18 months without interest which it was a good deal for him. The payments will be about $550.00 a month.
When you decide to move forward with your surgery make sure you go to a couple clinics before you make a decision. its always good to check with a couple different doctors.

June, Thank you . You will see its worth it. Just makes sure you find a good doctor

Waiting,
As long you have someone to help you for the first couple days you should be OK. Take your time when you go to the restroom. no need to rush!!
One important thing is not to get upset or angry, this will prolong you healing. Take a lot of vitamins. I will post a picture of all the vitamins I'm taking.

thank you ladies

I'm feeling great and I'm looking great, lol
I been trying to update my photos, but for some reason I'm not being able. I had to change my user name a couple times with no luck. I will keep trying and hopefully I can figure it out soon.
