    Well my lymph node is out & since I just had surgery a few weeks ago (with a 6" incision in my stomach) I thought this would be a walk in the park... boy, was I wrong.

    I feel like someone is beating me in the side of the head with a hammer and bees are stinging me at the same time. Hubby told me it was puffier today... so I am watching it for darn infection. Doc said to call back if the pain stays at this level.

    Anyway, the IV nurse saw that I had Fibro in my chart... she asked if I had it and I said YES, I thought she was gonna roll her eyes, but SURPRISINGLY.. she said she had it too. I told her about this site. She had a heck of a time getting my IV in and almost forgot to give mne the IV antibiotics that I needed in my IV. Luckily I reminded her and she was happy I did.

    I felt bad when she had to wheel me out to hubbys truck after the surgery. I was thinking how exhausted she had to be and in pain I'm sure.

    Anyway, this is the 2nd nurse (and 1 doctor) I have met in the past 6 mos that said they had it too. More and more ppl. I run in to have it.

    Hope all is well with you all... I am just lounging around hoping this pain will go away soon. Much worse than I expected.

    That sounds like quite the ordeal.
    I hope you're recovering well and feeling even better this evening.

    HI Jodie...the surgery before this one was for my nerves that were cut. Had nerve problems that were cut during a previous surgery where I got a staph infection. They put tissue over the nerves to pad them, hoping that they would calm down.

    Then the one last week was for a hard lymph node. Getting better though. Nat had my spleen removed yet - OUCH - sounds like a big incision too!

    Georgiac - more and more ppl. with it. It's a shame, but I guess people are more aware than they used to be about this darn disease. Take Care!

    Hugs to you all.

    Sorry to hear all this./ Please take care and watch for infection. The nodes are tricky.
