Sending an extra prayer for protection. The older we get the harder these become. And be kind to the doctors and nurses! I have to keep reminding myself of that one.

Thank you to everyone for all the prayers & well wishes. Now comes the hard part. Nothing to eat or drink all day then surgery. Thanks again & I'll post an update later if I'm able. Or maybe tomorrow. LOL

The "no-eating" is for YOUR protection as much as it is for the medical staff. Remember the one lady who farted during surgery and had her flatulence ignited by the laser? :eek: Even without the laser and fire, I'm sure it was pretty traumatic for everyone involved. :p

I know this is probably late, but hope your surgery goes off without a hitch.

Completely different time zone over here. :mellow:

Going in for hernia surgery tomorrow at 4:30pm. Should be a snap but just in case it isn't it's been fun on here. At 71 you never know what can happen. I wanted arthroscopic but too much scar tissue from the prostate cancer surgery. DAM!!! Hope to be back soon. :)

Sad but true, you never know what will happen. I will pray.

UPDATE UPDATE!!!
Surgery went very well. About 45 minutes on the table. Dr said it was quite large. Rough night for sleeping in my recliner but couldn't get in & out of bed easily. Sore as hell today but that's expected. Finally got to eat after 24 hours. LOL Now resting for a while then a short walk. Thank you all again for the prayers & well wishes. The is the best forum & the greatest members. :)

Glad to hear it went well. Don't over do it right away and get healed up quickly.

You can bet I won't overdo. Wife took off work until follow up appt. 12/13. She's a typical doting Italian mother! :)

UPDATGE!! Getting around a little better. Still kind of sore but haven't taken any pain meds since Saturday morning. Going for a short walk today. Need to get away from the doting Italian wife for a while. Don't get me wrong I love her to pieces & she has done everything I need but she can be a little overbearing at times. She took off from work until my follow up appt. on the 13th. :)

That's great! Push but not too hard. That walk should feel good too.

I just got back from my CT scan and should have the results tomorrow. So yeah I'm wishing us both good luck.
