Glad to hear your still alive, fortunately I was spark out for the count. Sedation they said, don't remember a thing. I did wake up twice, said it hurts and was immediately knocked out again.


Must be nice to be home. Sounds a bit of a marathon all round for you. I don't remember anything. One minute they were about to start and the next it was all over but it was nothing like 6 hours. They must have done a thorough job for you! Do take it very easy and do as little as possible.


OMG I can't believe you didn't have a GA ! Mine was around the same time as yours . You are so brave ! And then to be told it was the worse one he had ever done , no wonder you cried ! But as every day dawns I feel a little better . I have to odd stray beat when I lie down at night but that's to be expected
