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 ,,,,,


What part of your spine has been operated on?


Hello Bob here

Well done

Hope all goes well with Specialist



Lower spine I think L1 L4,,, entry was via my tummy.

Just had my drains removed and sitting in chair next to bed. They say all being well home on Saturday.


Happy to hear a positive response from you as I am also due for my op. Keep on the updating us please. Take care.


Hard day today, as I had surgery from the front. My bowels are not happy. Lots of wind trying to get out very painful, feels like I have been punched. All other things considered I have no back pain, Hooray!!!!!!!!! Tomorrow I am told, I can walk a little bit.
