Glad to hear you have had the operation. The pain should diminish as time goes by. Hope chest calms down a bit too, or your Asthma Specialist will sort it.

General anaesthetics can take a while to recover from. Don't be surprised if it takes the best part of a week to get over the general.

I normally ok once I've had a few nebs after general but like he said my lungs been through so much lately and this was just another herdle to go through il get there got to keep going somehow x

Glad things went well. Get better soon love Bernadette 😳 xxx

Tracye, bless your heart ❤️. Hope your pain lets up soon! Do you have any kind of pain cream you could rub on your ribs to ease the soreness? Are you home again ? Rest well sweet friend. 🙏🏻🙏🏻 For you😘

Try and rest and relax. Hope everyone is looking after you as you won't be able to do much at the moment with restricted movement. Is your wrist in plaster?

Glad your okish, and sounds like it went well. Hope everything settles down and you make your appointment next Tuesday.

How's your wrist?

Not to bad but easier but got pin killers topped up big time

I hope they don't interfere with your Asthma. I have just let out a big wheeze and scared my cats. Off for some inhalers.

Pleased you had the operation. I hope your wrist gets better soon.
