Thank you for your kindness and an update.

First and most important: Thank you to everyone who sent good wishes and thoughts my way. You are greatly apprciated..
You have no idea. I am at home and three days ago, I started driving again, so I can get around.

One of the posts from the March 9 thread stated that it can take a year to get one's strength back from this kind of surgery. Another
friend said at least 6 months. You have helped me to accept the fact that the weakness doesn't go away immediately.. My brother had it and after ten days, he was walking a mile.. He is not me..and I was/am not as good shape as he was when he had his. The idea of getting around is actually exciting. So last week I went to buy food at two different foodstores. So I used the shopping cart as support and went and bought food and brought it home. I am so grateful that I can do those little things, even though I am very slow at it.
I am slowly getting stronger, although some days it does not feel like it. I am greatful for friends and family who supported me thru this
And thank you again to the lounge...You Are the Best..
Stuart G.

2. My dear Stuart G...

I'm so glad we were able to help you understand what was happening.

I'm thrilled you can drive! It gives such a feeling of independence.

And yes, some days you feel pretty good, and others not so much. Over time, though, your good days will outnumber the not-so-good.

We've got your back!
