Just updating my recovery from multiple hernia surgery that I had on Wednesday the 18th. The hernias were "incisional hernias" due to emergency surgery I had about 6 years ago for a perforated ulcer and my weight caused them. Since losing 80 lbs, my doc said I could get this done before I had to move from Kaiser to the High Deductible health plan my company has replaced the Kaiser plan with. I'm at home. I came home on Friday afternoon and things have been getting better. I took a shower today for the first time after the surgery and that felt quite good to get cleaned up. Sleep has been getting better and I'm currently not taking any pain meds although it can be fairly painful when standing and moving. But I feel so much less groggy and more able to do things than to just lay in bed and sleep all day and all night. It was quite the shock when the surgeon reported that the two large hernias were much larger than he had anticipated and that there were two other small ones for a total of 6. But it seems like it will be a success and I look forward to getting back to normal soon. I have to wear this darned "binder" around my belly for six weeks though. That is going to be not so much fun. But other than that, I think I should be able to enjoy Christmas and such. Thanks all! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! And I look forward to getting back to shooting as soon as I can. I'm limited in how much I can lift right now for the next six weeks so I think carrying my SR1911 is going to be out for that period.
