Day Surgery

My surgery on the 11th went well. At first we thought it might not happen because of all the delays. But finally at 2pm I had my surgery.

I was told my Dr fixed all that she could. Many stitches so I am being very careful when sitting. And yes I went home at 5pm. Only 3 hours later, a first for me.

I am doing good just taking it easy as my neck surgery is on the 6th of June. More later.

My Current Update

Just wanted to give you a brief update.

Tomorrow May 11th I am having my prolapse fixed or repaired - it is a day surgery. I was told I go to the hospital in the morning and go home in the afternoon. I am hoping this is true.

We are shooting for the last week of May or first week of June for my neck surgery. That procedure will be a lengthy one, with a 4 to 7 day stay in the hospital He will be cutting out and replacing my vertebrae's at the 4th through 7th levels of my neck with rods and screws. I will blog as soon as I get a date.

I have been in the neck brace now for 5 weeks - will be wearing it until the surgery and for 6 weeks afterwards. I was told I will be having months of therapy and it could take up to a year to heal. I am praying the healing goes more quickly and the surgery is a success this time.
