Well, I am impressed in the advances in medicine. I had a tummy hernia repair done yesterday and was up walking about an hour after the surgery. I am cut open from belly button to sternum and a mesh placed in as this was the third time that this incision was repaired, yet I feel great. The last time I had this hernia repaired I was in hospital for a week and still felt like crap for a week afterwards.
Best of all, I may be able to finish the 1 week build!

i hope you make a quick complete recovery, its amazing that you can complete a 1week GB so soon after surgery  :o
my father had a similar operation a few years back and he had to stay in hospital for over a week.
isnt modern medicine amazing  :rolleyes:
on the bench:

-all kinds of things.


The cynic in me often wonders how many out patient surgeries are insurance company driven (especially here in the US), but in your case it sounds great!    :thumbsup:

Presumably you are on some pretty good pain meds, so I'll be looking forward to seeing what you come up with for the One Weeker!!  ;D
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

Glad to hear everything's okay Gary, didn't even know you were going in. Now belly up to the bar, but don't bust a gut laughing at the jokes because we couldn't stomach it.

Gary, glad things went well. Be very thankful your Doc wasn't a what-If fan or you might be sporting a new set of jugs  ;D

Don't over do it, don't want to hear your going in for round four because you thought you were superman!

Thanks to all, but you're not gonna believe this. About 2 hours after I made the post about my surgery, I asked my son to drive me to Wallmart to get some Rubbermaid containers for my books. We were at a red light and a guy in a jeep slammed into the back of us. My son was fine but I was pretty torn up. Something about blood pooling beneath the surgical site as a result of torn blood vessels in an already torn open area. My shoulder and neck are a mess too because I could hear him sliding and I turned to see what was happening behind us. Got home at midnight.

I am seriously stoned from the new meds I am on. Waaaay more powerful than Tylenol 3's. Poor fuzzy bunny in the jeep felt awful and called last night to see if I was OK. He felt really badly about it. No real damage so frig insurance and such. Maybe I should make him buy me a new airbrush!
