I am Home! let the healing begin

The surgery took 3.5 hours but was successful!!! I discovered that I have nerve damage in my left leg that more then likely has been there for awhile but I didn't know it because I didn't feel it. With the bypass and the improved blood flow, I can now feel the damage and it is starting to heal causing a great pain.

No one can tell me how long this new pain will last, but the medicine they have me on is helping. I have to walk with a walker and no driving for a month.

At this point in the healing process I would have to say that I am questioning myself for putting myself threw this crap. But, I bet in an other week of healing my feelings will change.

Hugs to you all, and thank you friends for your support
