Hello, everyone. Well, now begins the recovery of this journey. I had my surgery this morning at 7:30 a.m. and it was interesting. I got registered right away, waited about 20 minutes with my family and then was called back to begin the process of getting ready. They have you shower 2X (the night before and the morning of) at home. Then when you get there they give you wipes to do in certain order (which are warmed by the way) to disinfect you again. I got some pain meds via IV and they put in spinal and a nerve block. I was wheeled in and while in the OR I was talking to the Physician in charge of anesthesia and Wham! time to wake up.
