    Thanks, everyone, for the nice comments. I almost feel guilty posting that I'm doing so well as I know there are those who still have pain issues. OTOH, I know that when I was pre-op I wanted to read the positives more than the negatives. I think it is natural for those having a smooth recovery and are also trying to deal with returning to work, being a mother, etc., don't have a reason or the time to post, where as, the forum is the place to go when one has an issue. Well, I'm off the subject. Thanks, again!
