This is the end of my third week and everything is moving in the right direction. I feel remarkable well. My experience at Park West Hospital in Knoxville was very good. The doctors are great, the nurses, assistants and aids were all very good.
I experienced some discomfort but no serious pain. I took some pain pills the first couple days after surgery and then quit. I rather have the discomfort than have the feeling of being drugged. I am following the walking and breathing exercises at home and feel stronger each day. I am scheduled for a rehab evaluation tomorrow.
If anyone has questions, I will be glad to share additional information.
