Just a quick little post-op note -
My hardware removal surgery for my back went well. Wednesday evening I was doing better than I thought possible after having that 8" incision opened back up.
But, it did not last. As soon as the anesthetic wore off and when I tried to move from IV medications to pills - well, it's been very yuck!
The balancing act of trying to get the right combination of pain and anti-nausea pills working was awful.
In any case, I think I'm through the worst of it and I expect to be released Saturday morning.
Nothing like spending 4 to 5 days in the hospital when I was only expecting 1 to 2.
