    Hi Susan! I'm doing well! I was not looking forward to the surgery itself, but Dr?Nick. His staff, and Forest Park couldn't have made my experience any better! I felt like I was in very good hands. It's somewhat of a struggle after surgery, but I am pushing through! Good luck to you and keep me posted!

3rd day post op. Didn't feel very well today. I keep getting headaches. Has anyone else had this problem? I did manage to get all 40 grams of protein in and I feel better now. I went shopping at Kohl's for about 15 minutes and came home a took a nap!. I haven't gone out walking yet but plan to in a bit. All in all, the day is ending better than it started. Also had some chicken broth which tasted really good!

Well I had my surgery on 4/10/12. After waking up in recovery, I had a lot of pain. However, when I was able to start using my pain pump (with morphine) I was able to get comfortable. I got to my room about 5 pm and took my first walk down the hall around 8. Not too bad. It actually made me feel better. I took 2 more through the night as I didn't sleep very well. one particular problem I had was spasming of my left side for no apparent reason. It would just spasm and cause me to moan. It
