I had the laporscopic hysterectomy on Friday and I feel great-I'm a little suspicous that anything was removed at all because I have no pain whatsoever!!! I still have a little bit of the anesthesia hang over but, other than that I still can't believe I had major surgery 2 days ago.This could be a dangerous thing for me because I'm supposed to be taking it easy and what I really want to do is clean my house and brush Angel! I guess for now finishing my coffee will have to be enough!!!I'm thinking of taking a S-L-O-W walk on the tread mill to burn up some energy otherwise this is going to be a very long day!!!!Love and energy, Vicki

I'm so glad you are feeling good - but don't let that fool you into doing too much, you will feel it later! Enjoy this time - relax. Alot went on in there, even if you can't feel it. Take it easy!

Glad you are feeling well. I had laparoscopy surgery in December and I didnt feel so hot for a few days! Nice pain killers helped a lot though!

major surgery is major sugery..relax, Angel will get brushed, the house will get cleaned and the treadmill needs a nice rest...Take it easy..I know the feeling,I learned how to get past the pain of a c-section and did far to much and made the mistake of picking up my 2 year old..the next day I was sorry I did..So just enjoy no pain, your family and have angel come sit by you and pet her..Bet she will love that as much as a brushing for now. Take care of YOU for now...so glad things went so well for you and no problems YIPPEEEEEE

Don't push yourself too much too fast Vicki! This always happens with dh. He gets a cold and gets impatient to get better, then he exercises and does too much. Then he ends up with broncitis.

Glad that your surgery went well and you're feeling good! We haven't been seeing much of you recently, here's your opportunity to catch up! Browse the photos, you can see Andy's pictures of Aruba. Lay back and imagine you're there. ahhhh. Maybe I'll do that too.

It is great that you are feeling so well after major surgury but take it easy. Don't do any cleaning or cooking but just stay and rest either in bed or in your den.
