in theathre at 1230 today 1.5hr later came too. Sore. Morphine x 3 shots. walked to toilet in bed since its now 1030pm still have back pain mid way but legs better. but slight twinges. hard to judge with so much meds. worst part is decsion to do then its recovery and get on with life, doog the disc is burst and nothing will change that. it is a serious op but if your happy with surgeon and your decision then the stars are aligned. Have tv and web in room on overhead stand. Id say 2mrw qill be sore. my wife has been my rock today. she's amazing. keep the head up doog. its not too bad. stop the reading and web and thinking. focus on the after. the guy next to me had a hip replacement.
