Hello All! I am a new member here and I see already there are alot of great folks here. I had my surgery on December 17th 2007, spent 3 days in intensive care, needed 2 units of blood but started to get well very quickly . The most pain I had was from gout like symptoms in my left foot after it began to swell. Now almost 3 weeks later I am doing very well, walking alot, not much pain except in my foot still. My hunger came back quickly and being on a pureeded diet I feel full when I eat but not satisfied. I am lucky to not have any nausea or other discomfort at this time. I have some days feeling bright and happy for the future while others I feel depressed and at a loss for something, perhaps its my loss for the foods that put me in this whole situation in the first place. I had my drain removed 2 weeks after surgery and found myself on the examining table beginning to faint dead away, the strangest feeling in my whole life. The doctor figured it was my sitting so long in the waiting room without eatting or drinking, as water brought me quickly back to myself.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
