    Hi Russ

    I am sooo glad I had the op! I'm off the Morphine which was impossible before the op and looking forward to driving again in the next week or two. You know.....you really helped me prior to the op when you said that if you had to have it again, you would...it was reassuring to hear at a time when the unknown was scary ...thank you so much for that :D

    Take care

    Jules xx :D :D

    No worrries, I just remember before I had op how I was always saying I would never have the op... then the pain got to a point where I couldnt take it anymore, and after having it, realised there was nothing to worry about, I was forever reading people saying how it didnt work, or they were worse because if anything works for people they are unlikely to post it on here, well, it worked and I wanted others to know its not all doom and gloom......

    I am still on is Co-codamol and the only time I was on morphine was in hospital.... Its hard to believe now how unbearable the pain was, could not stand or sit without being in pain.....

    I think my wife is glad I had it done too, no more groaning from me everytime I stand or sit smile

    Still havent driven yet but I figure if I dont have to then there is no point in rushing it, been told not to drive long distances still for a while too sad

    The good thing about this site is that u dont have anyone to compare yourself to, until u log onto sites like this

    K enough of me going on

    hi both

    it is a good moral booster for the rest of us to know that yes the ops can be a success, and people do recover and get on with normal lives, there is too much emphasise on some sites about ops that have gone wrong or do not work and it does make you wary, but we have good news on this site eh, lets hope we,r all lucky eh. oh and i do think positive thinking is just as important with recovery as the physical stuff.. keep it up folks!. gail

    Hi gail,

    I agree about the positive attitude, both pre and post op and all I was reading pre op was how this op went wrong and that op didnt work and I am sure if the pain hadnt got so bad for me I probably would have been against the op, the thing is everyone is different, it comes down to the consultant too and all his team, I know I was lucky in that respect....

    Was glad to find this site and think its good to see so many different people on here and how each on is dealing with it.... and the support that others can give too I think is priceless.

    Right, enough of me sounding like I know what Im chattin about

    Russ x
