I have been on here for about a day and I already feel like I have a new extended family to travel with, and to have join me on my medical journey. I was commenting to my wife about this yesterday. I feel far less alone and slightly less anxious. I will be here to support and seek support for quite awhile. Thank you all!
When I consider the future, my single greatest fear is post-op pain. Will I wake up in agony? Will pain be well managed as I need it? I know everyone is different but I have read a remarkably wide spectrum of post op experiences.
