Had the surgery this morning, and things seem to be going well.

The only other time I had surgery was the foot surgery, and am still marveling at how i can get up and walk around this time without difficulty.  Or crutches.

I am not in much pain.  There is a little.  I would say a 3 on the 1-10 scale.  But I took a pain pill anyway.  Partially out of curiosity in how it would make me feel, and partially out of fear that it will start to hurt worse.  They gave me Dilaudid, because I had complained about Percocet.  I hated it when I had it for the foot surgery.

My mother is a nurse.  I told her they gave me Dilaudid, and she was shocked.  “you don’t need that!”  she said.  WD had looked it up and said, “I don’t know if you should take this beyond the first day …”  It’s an opiate, and much like Morphine.  I have to say – it definitely feels better than the Percocet did.

I would like to complain about my husband now.  But I’m thinking that it may just be the medication talking, and I know he’s a helpful and good guy, for the most part, so I won’t air his rudeness to the internets.  (Clearly the medication is not THAT strong.)
