Home again


and not suffering too badly thanks to the wondrous combination of Percocet and Vioxx.

Surgery went well, I slept/dozed most of the day, and finally got home just after 7:30PM. So far the pain is almost exactly like the pain I had before surgery but it should drop off in the next few days. The surgeon said my post-op bruising would resemble "Wilson" from the Tom Hanks' movie Cast Away. That made me laugh, actually. I have 4 little tapes on various parts of my abdomen. The coolest thing is that I don't have any stitches that will need to be removed.

The thing that's bothering me the most right now is where the IV was, in my left hand. Since I am left-handed it's more of a bummer than it would be for most people.

Time to lie down and return to my vegetative state...
