Praise the Lord! Thank you for the update and good report, Verna. I'm reminded of one of my patients when I worked orthopedics at the U of MN hospital. Since she had not asked for any pain medication post-op, I asked her if she didn't need some. After a couple times of her refusing medication, I had to ask, "Aren't you having pain?" She replied, "Oh, it hurts, but nowhere near how the (pre-op) arthritic hip hurt!"Verna wrote:Thank you for your prayers. Surgery went well. Hope to heal fast. Hugs to all.
And, judging by my own bone pain when I broke my ankle, here I was expecting she'd have at least as much pain after such a major surgery.
I'm hoping you have similar post-op comfort as my patient while you are on the mend, my dear!
