    ... had I been given a choice, I would have gone for the two chicks. :p

    Last Wednesday, I had two surgeries... one for a hernia, and the other for... er lady stuff / parts - it was lovely, let me tell you. I'm now at home, recovering, and in pain. The upside to all of this... I am this close (imagine my thumb and index finger measuring about a millimeter) to being a card carrying medical marijuana patient (hey, gotta look at the bright side of things, you know).


    *Takes a percocet, eats a brownie, and counts the carpet fibers in my living room floor*

    The time I spent in the recovery room was... bizarre. The nurse in there with me was almost inappropriately cheerful. At one point, when she was teaching me to pee with a catheter, she went overboard with the explaining... "Now this right here is you la-bee-aaah." For those who are unaware, I am 37 years old, have given birth, and know what a labia is. :p

    Sweet blahg?

    Percocets made me a happy girl after my ankle surgery. Glad everything went well, though. I fully support medical brownies.

    Did they take the stick out of your butt while they were at it?

    You had labia surgery?

    Which one, major or minor?

    I was just trying to make you laugh, because I know it hurts.

    Even though I thoroughly disagree with the implied opinion held here, this made me laugh so hard I could have used a catheter myself.

    Glad you're on the mend! A buddy of mine had hernia surgery once...part of his intestine wound up in his ball sack. It was nasty.

    Glad to here you're recovering. My brother had hernia surgery a few years ago and he was in a ton of pain. Hope the meds are working!!

    I agree, but stick to the brownies. One harsh bong hit could do some real damage to your freshly stitched abdomen.

    Yes, exactly... strictly edibles for a longish while.

    Edibles aren't necessarily a bad thing. :p

    EDIT: Would vaping pose a risk?

    well, now, aye-aye-aye... that's precisely why-i-i chose that one.. 'cause i thought the juxtaposition of the word speedy and the turtle image was higheffinlarious! .. but in a quiet, inward sort of way.

    glad you noticed!

    The hospital gave me a complimentary teddy bear... my son and I named him Staples, after the titanium tacks that will reside in my abdomen for the rest of my life. :p

    Good thing they're titanium. My grandmother's ribs are wired together after bypass surgery and they told her it would be a...good idea to avoid MRI's. There's a mental image for you.

    I remember percocet. Useful stuff, but I absolutely hated having to use it. I don't understand people who actually enjoy the stuff. Morphine's even worse. No chemical's going to tell me that I'm happy, dammit! I reserve full control.

    Hope you get well soon, harps! [:D]


    Also, my Dad had a hernia operation a couple of years back - and two weeks after that he was at our cottage carrying heavy stones around for a garden wall... :oops: I have to constantly remind him that he's not 20 anymore... or 30... or 40... or 50... :p

    I'm allergic to opiates, so they're not much good after surgery for me.
