    8 weeks today, woohoo!

    Here I am 8 weeks after TLKR and soooooo very thankful I have had the surgery, and thankful I made it this far, there were times I didn't think I would.

    Hi and Thanks

    Hi everyone, Even though you didn't know it you have been my guides and encouragement over the past few weeks. I first found you at four weeks recovery when I was feeling like I would never see any improvement. Sharing your experiences showed me I was on the right track, it was very...
