Best pathology

Today I had my post-op checkup - "spectacular", got the drains and the Iron Maiden (my name for the ace bandage) removed, permission to drive (hot dog!), restrictions - don't lift 50# bags of grain for 4 weeks - not even 25# buckets. Will do. The very best part, though all that was pretty good - absolutely clean path report.

Rica ~ You're truly an inspiration.  My Mom went through almost exactly the same thing 5 years ago and sailed through as well.  She's had no similar problems since and continues to get clean reports.  You sound a lot like she did - just something that needed to be taken care of, then move on with the rest of your life.  Your positive attitude is what we should all aspire to emulate!

I almost forgot three

I almost forgot three things: first, thanks to everyone for caring - this place is so great; second, I will not go on the roof, I will not go on the roof, I will not...;third, Brenda got her Doxycycline today! This is the same Brenda to whom I gave my cane two years ago, who has been on Rifampin and flagyli for TWO YEARS - not that she hasn't been trying! She told him she wasn't leaving until she got it!

Since "they" sent the PT in the morning after surgery, I feel obligated to do my adhesions prevention exercises. I think I am going to have full range of motion. Doing a sentinel instead of a modified radical was very definitely the right thing.
