Speedy recovery bro. Ignore Girly.

Nah, Girly's posts are great! They are the kind a person who is reasonably sure that they have a fiend (albeit electronic) to be abo to do this. Thumbsup

As for the surgery, that (sofa) hurts less than the 7 tries it took ti get the IV in. Sad

I'm alittle woozy from the surgery meds, though. I'm supposedly only going to need Tylenol, which is OK by me.

^^^This is Fireball on drugs! Laugh out load Friend, I meant friend! Honest! I don't know where TF the "sofa" came from, either. Huh

I ended up taking 3 whole Tylenol tablets. Two the day of surgery (one had codeine in it), and one the next day. That was it. It doesn't hurt unless I try to power through something. I went in for "suture removal" today. The nurse asked where the bandage went. I told her that I took it off after I spilled beef blood on it when grilling steaks for my MIL's birthday. It would have smelled pretty badly 2 days later. Facepalm That was the primary reason for my visit, I was told. Well, don't tell me it's for suture removal, then. Hobo On top of which, the sutures are dissolvable. Some bad communications, there. Now, I get to stroke it a few times a day with lotion to reduce the scar tissue, and do range of motion movements. Easy-peasy.

I was told nothing but Tylenol for pain for two weeks because the other stuff (Naproxyn sodium, (my go-to), Ibuprofen and aspirin) can cause reduced coagulation. I take pain medication (beyond the 81 mg ASA tablet) about 3 times a year, except for when I have surgery. That #3 Tylenol I took a week ago today is something like 5 years old. I must be a masochist- I'd just as soon just ignore the pain, if I can. Yes
