But about 3 hours later I'm back to a basket case. No chair is comfy and my eyes just want to be shut. Tomorrow afternoon I see the surgeon again. The one thing I know for sure is that any sign of being cold brings this too tired to think on.... Read more

That happened to me today. I had to have a friend take me into the surgeons office this morning. He poked and prodded around my leaking knee and decided it was only one of the outside stitches that was giving me so much trouble but would still... Read more
