Hi all! Just wanted to let you know that I had my surgery a week ago tomorrow. The tin cans are gone! All went exactly as planned, with no complications! The recovery has been pretty easy! Phew! Praise God for that!
I had 1 day of post-surgery pain, but with the help of pain medications, I got through it with no problem. After only a few more days, I was able to move from the heavy duty meds to only tylenol, and then after only another day or so, I was able to stop pain meds all together.
So now I just have to be careful to behave myself…no lifting, straining. I even have to be careful not to hug too hard. Haha!
All in all, I am overjoyed! This was a huge step for us. This surgery was the last big event in my treatment. Yes, I will have infusion treatments until August and medications for several years, and possibly some touch-up surgeries, but for the most part, we are done!
Of course, I have reflections that I will look forward to sharing with you soon. But for now, I just wanted you to know that all is well, and I am beyond grateful!
Thank you for your endless prayers and support!
