2.15 (lunch) they wheeled me down to theatre and 6.15pm I woke up, very briefly. I have been in and out of sleep till now at 3.52 am. No food, not even a slice of dry toast and only sips of water. i am hungry and trust my own mind so i am so glad i tucked away a bar of chocolste, so from behind the curtain as quietly as possible its me opening the wrapped. lol,,,,,My operation was conducted via my stomach. I have turned in bed and my only pain was that of a tummy punch. So good so far. Looking forward to brekie !!!!!!!!

More tomorrow good nite x

  • So glad all went well and I hope you continue to improve and lead a wonderful, full life. Spinal surgery has come on on leaps and bounds. There doesn't appear to be a forum for success stories. Please keep us informed.

  • I will,,, this is also what I found very little success stories, only tails of misery ......

    Breaking wind like a trooper today which is good sign my bowls are happy, so I get rewarded with food ,,,,,
