Default Re: Surgery Nerves - any help is appreciated!

Hi Jade - Post op in hospital time is not fun but it is not as horrific as I thought it would be. Your pain should be well managed and if it is not, shout! I found lying on my back for so long was very uncomfortable, even through the epidural and meds. As soon as they let you up, shuffle about the ward as often as you can - it really helps. If you have a reclining chair by your bed, try that as it relieves the pressure on your back - worked for me. Each day gets better. Showering is bliss so get under it as soon as you are allowed. Let us know how you go. All the very best for your recovery. Heather
