ken f. Posted November 30, 2004 Share Posted November 30, 2004 well that was quick and lucky. after surgery wed last at 4 p.m. where part of upper right lobe and part of lower right lobe were excised with lots of nodes, they had me walking in ICU within 12 hours of surgery, to a ward within 20 hours and discharged altogether in 4 hours under 5 days. thanks to the docs for epidurals and thanks for the stuff i'm taking now! what a rush and mix of emotions with the depression of the morphine and being able to do guided mediation even with a thick head. i expect to be able to lie down within a couple days and am pleased as punch to be able to sit and watch a video and tease my grandkids. pathology reports should start mid weed with the holiday delay which is soon enough for me. my surgeon, an all business kinda guy who does crack a grin from time to time (sort of) set me for follow up in 14 days. before that if i want him its emergency. i am just amazed that the slice they stapled shut is healing, that i'm not seeing red with pain or anxiety as i did with an abdominal surgery some years back, and that the sun still shines.
