    I'm now 2 days on the other side and finally able to post something--pretty zooed out on drugs. Hate to feel drugged but need to keep the pain managable. I'm about to go to PT to learn to do stairs.

    Welcome to the other side proskier! That druggy feeling is only temporary but very import to get that pain controlled from the start.

    Enjoy your stairs! This is the being of a whole new life!

    Hey Proskier its day 4 for me!! I know the druggie feeling but its helping us!! In more than one way, lol. My husband & !8yo daughter actually got a kick out of my highness, lol. But they understand its for pain management, right, lol. Keep up the good work and a sense of humor too.
