Hi, nice to meet you!
I am glad you have responded so well to the surgery! Sounds like you really have experienced what I am currently going through. I've had 2 other major surgeries over the last 2 years on my spine. One was VERY painful and a long recovery and then one day, just like that, it was gone. Given my experience with those surgeries and others, I should have asked about the usual after surgery recovery and pain, etc. Oh well, it isn't anything I can't life with.

Actually, I do take the Tylenol Arthritis, which is very helpful. However, on those horrific days when nothing helps, I do take a pain pill. I try to take them only at night, however. I often roll over in my sleep and wake myself up in pain. At that point, it is hard to fall back to sleep.

Believe me, I know the pain will go away!

I'm so happy that the surgery has worked for you. If my lymph nodes are clears, I shouldn't need any other treatments. Regular check ups should be the only thing, along was CAT scans.

Will keep you informed when I find out more.

Have a great day!

@grandmar It's great to meet you too. Wow, you had back surgery 2xs. From what I've heard jit can be excruciating. Will try to avoid that and keep on with spinal injections from time to time. I'm not as brave as you. Anyway, you certainly have a wonderful and upbeat attitude! Do take the prescribed pain pills when you need them. I wasn't criticizing at all. They were so stingy with me because they were opioids that I just got a few and was really cautious as to how and when I took them. So glad to hear from you and get to know you. Thank you for keeping us informed. You have a fantastic day, too.
