Surgery is in 2.5 hours.. Eeeeeek! - Page 2

post #31 of 48
Glad you survived. I missed the post, but I could imagine you waking up during the operation and making all the surgeons laugh, especially since you'd be drugged up.

Kim, I know I'm a little late and you're probably at the hospital and recovering now but I wanted you to know I'm thinking about you.

I take Lexapro and love it. I have to be careful because I have narcolepsy so I can't take anything that will make me lethargic or sleepy. Lexapro works well for me and I've been on it for 4 months now. Prozac always made me feel out of it.

I swear your "I'm home" message wasn't there when I posted the above message! This happens to me every once in awhile where I only see a few posts and then the next time I go back there are ones I didn't see before! Am I going nuts or does this happen to anyone else?

Kim, I've been out of town for over a week, and I'm just catching up. I'm SO GLAD your surgery went well. You follow the Doctor's orders and have people wait on you!!!!!!! I'm so glad it went well and you're back home safe and sound. The hard part comes next, but pamper yourself (and be pampered) in the meantime. And enjoy those meds since you need them anyway, LOL!!!!!!!!

All the kids send scritches to you, LOL! Hugs from me.

I have to tell ya.... I woke up this morning and I felt like my foot was run over by a semi. I am still as high as a freakin' kite. Now I know why I was told not to make any major decisions while on this medication. Whew! I was prescribed oxycontin for pain and after researching it, I found out it is really Strrrroonnng! Anyway...I called my surgeon today and ask him if he could prescribe liquid Loratab instead and he did. It's not nearly as potent as oxycontin.......(PROOF: it tooke me a long time to t ype this, Lol!)

Kim, please be very very careful with Oxycontin! It's extremely addictive & one of the most powerful pain med's out there. Lortab can still be addictive, but not nearly as bad. Just please be careful, ok?

Thanks Shell I will be careful. Later on tonight, I am supposed to start taking Loratab instead of Oxycontin... I plan to toss the Oxycontin—it makes me feel terrible anyway.

Kim, when Gary had a growth removed from his head (not a brain tumor though), he looked like he'd been hit by a truck, but didn't feel that way.

I'm so sorry - it seems like you're in pain despite the meds.

What I can't believe is how much sense you ARE making, LOL!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW - you might have mentioned it earlier, but I don't remember. How long before you're up and around - and then any idea how long before you'll be without pain? Will you have to use a cane or a crutch or something? God - one of my fears is having something happen to my feet. I know what you're going through will be so worth it, but you're so brave!!!!!!!!!!!!!
