Glad you're there. Use the cryo pack! You need help with that. Do you have help, someone to help you with everything?

yes, I have the ‘polarpack’ and had help the 1st few days, was alone yesterday and she'll be leaving tonight. had to wrestle the pp by myself once so far, don't know what people do without help, guess I'll figure it out. will call one of the girls from work and have them stop over to help me with it. the weekend was awful, pain meds didn't help, I told them percocet doesn't work well for me, good thing I had vicodin to fall back on, they phoned in a script yesterday, so I'm good with that. I got good advice from people, don't scrimp on the pain meds, it hurts like hell. I hear ‘open’ surgery is worse, if this is better, my heart goes out to those that have to have it. i'm sleeping (kinda)in a recliner, son's roommate loaned me his, for as long as i need it.
time for meds and shower, hugs to all!
