    Sooo... here we go again. Tomorrow I get to have both of these lovely procedures redone, since they've both failed. I knew that they failed a year ago, but as some of you know, I broke my leg in January and had to have it bolted together. The two failed surgeries had to wait until I could walk again... and I can.

    So hooray... or something.

    2012 has been a ****ing **** year for me. :p

    Wish me luck, and pray that I don't croak, or something.

    Whoopie.

    I hope you don't croak. Remind those stupid doctors not to screw it up this time. And pay attention to where you're walking.

    Nice that they waited until you could walk to make it more painful when you do.

    I wish you the best and send good thoughts your way Kristie. [:D]

    Good luck. Tell the doctors to make sure there are no "re-dos" this time.

    1) It wasn't the doctors' fault... the mesh implants were defective.
    2) I didn't break my leg walking... I fell off a chair I was standing on. :p

    Aren't there class action lawsuits going around about the mesh implants? You could make a few pennies joining up with one of them.

    I am aware.

    But anyway... this thread is for recovery room hilarity and adventures in pain medication. :p

    Well then watch where you're walking and keep your feet on solid ground.

    When you sue them for a gazillion dollars, I'm coming to see you and we're going to Burning Man.

    I have never been to Burning Man, and am totally down for it.

    Thanks, Tom... so do I.

    I've pretty much accepted the fact that I'm not getting any sleep tonight. I've had these procedures done before, and therefore know what to expect... zero use of my abdominal muscles. So I've been scrubbing the **** out of my apartment, because I'm not going to be capable of really cleaning it for a while... that, and I'm pretty nervous. It's really unnerving to allow somebody to knock you out so that somebody else can cut you open. I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to not think about that, though... my doctors are really great, and I know I'll be fine... but still. :p
