Reply To: Had my surgery done finally – Shouldice
Thanks, William. I will indeed give it time before getting more concerned. I think my pain (both initially and what’s lingering) is outside the realm of what is common for this procedure, but I don’t know that it’s so abnormal that I should be very concerned at this point. It’s too bad that the crew over there (doctors, nurses) weren’t more reassuring. I think the big improvement so far is a very good sign, and I hope it will continue, but I live in uncertainty and I’m not back to normal, a situation which may persist for a while. My symptoms right now are still worse than what they were when I had the hernia, so it’s hard to be excited so far.
Yes, I chose my surgeon – this wasn’t a problem actually.
