Hi fellow woodworkers and friends,
I am happy to announce that I had my surgery on Wednesday and have been home since late yesterday.
Surgery went well and discovered that it was just in time ! My liver is damaged from the obeisety.
They tell me it will heal on it's own and should go back to normal after a while. Weighed myself yesterday and down to 315lbs. My goal is to be 210lbs apx. The pain is not bad at all. I took the pain meds at 5AM and they say every 6hrs and I still don"t feel I need them and it's 2PM. Got a bad case of bursitis in my left elbow and it seems to be going away. Staples to be removed next Friday and then I'll be ready to make sawdust again ! Thanks to all for your best wishes and support throughout this process.
Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.
