    I'm going in for surgery tomorrow morning, so I'll be out of it for a while, and won't be on here very much. Not that I really am on a whole lot, but still. [​IMG]

    It's a bilateral inguinal herniorraphy (No, I'm not the typical hernia patient: a fat old man of 70 is what the nurse said she was expecting. Well, she got a relatively slender girl still in her teens. [​IMG]) It's a simple procedure, even though the name sounds big.

    So, just wanted to let y'all know!! [​IMG]

    Hope everything goes well! [​IMG]

    At least you should heal faster than a fat old man of 70. [​IMG]

    My DS had that when he was 5. You may not heal as fast as he did; he was crawling in and out of the bed 2 hours post-op, and hasn't stopped since. He's now 33. Best wishes for your surgery to be easy peasy!
