Hello my Lupee family, I am doing fine got out of hospital on Thurs. Iam with home health assistance and physical therapy. I have tried to use pain meds sparingly, but soon realized that was not a good idea at this point. My pain level was a 12!!! now. I will get back on schedule and follow directions:)

I'm glad you're home, and I wish you a speedy recovery : ) I'm sorry your pain level was so high, and I hope you get it under control soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you!


So glad to hear you are doing well. Don't try to be a hero. It's easier to follow directions and stay out of pain than to have to try to get it back under control after it's a 12.

You sound like your spirits are up so let's hope that trend continues.



Praying for a quick recovery. Take care of yourself and listen to your body!


Glad to hear you're doing better. Follow those directions! :)

Feel better soon.

Glad to hear you are home. Make sure you rest. I tried to not use my medicine once too. Not a good plan. No one should suffer, take your medication. :-)

Glad to hear you’re out of the hospital and in the comfort of your own home. I hope your physical therapy goes well and your pain level eventually decreases. Use your pain medication if need be, so you don’t suffer unnecessarily. Take care.

Thanks for all your words of encouragement and I have my pain under control. I am in a flare now but I am doing fine.

So glad to hear out of the hospital and doing better!!

So glad to hear you managed to escape!!! I hate hospitals!!! It is sooo much nicer trying to recover at home. The only thing I missed when I got released was the morphine drip…would be nice to have one of those at home :wink:
Wishing you a very speedy recovery!! Best of luck!!

Great news.

My daughter and my next door neighbor were joking with me the other day. The neighbor wanted to know if she could borrow two hydrocodone. I told her that I didn't have any because I wasn't taking them anymore. They started laughing and told me that when I came home from back surgery all I did was take pain meds and sleep. My response was, "DUH."

Take your meds and rest so that you may heal.

So glad you are safely home.
