Well, it appears that I was right, that the pain and swelling I have had since Mar 2010 IS real and something that needs attention.
I have two (2) incisional hernias, and both will be repaired on Friday, 4/8. There may also be some abdominal adhesions that will need to be resected. I will then be in the hospital for about 4 more days, and then will come home and start recuperation.
I may actually get to living “normally” again.
So prayers go out to the surgical and medical team, and for me, Joey and Evan. I’ll update after surgery…
