my hubby had his this past Tuesday. He couldnt believe it was already over with when they brought him to the room. He slept a bit, then up and walking a few hours later. He was released on Thurs, and taken off his DIABETES med's before he left the hospital, yay! Walk, walk, walk and sip, sip, sip. He's doing excellent and says he already feels better than he did BEFORE surgery. We've been to Walmart twice and to Sam's today, and he is having absolutely NO problems at all! My surgery is July 23, and I'd go crawl up on that table today if they could get me in there. We scheduled weeks apart, but I really think we could've done it the same day with no problem. You'll be fine and it'll be over with, and you will be home before you know it, and onto a healthier life!
