WTG Brad!!!!   I'm with you on that - was freaked, but it really was OK once it's over.
Keep up the good work - stay on the meds - keep yourself feeling comfortable!  there's enough time later on when you'll start pushing yourself to get off the meds - enjoy them while you can.

Congratulations Brad!  It is wonderful isn't it.  Like you I expected it to be much more difficult and painful than it was.  Not that it is all that easy.  Once I was home and not on 24 hour pain meds I had to deal with some pain and tenderness, but again, nowhere near what I expected. Good for you!!

Congrats, Brad! Like Jennifer says, there will be ups and downs, but the recovery is now.
