    Anyone hear from Boomergal?

    Her surgery was 9/21, but haven't seen any posts. Anyone hear from her? Maybe she changed logins?

    Oops--meant to post this in First Time Surgery category. Dang.

    I clicked the wrong category. Linda, can you move this? Sorry!

    I think it's in the right place... no? Wasn't she having a revision surgery?

    Hi, everyone,

    Boomergal here and doing okay. I did post a couple of times after my last
    surgery. Do an advanced search and you'll see posts under "boomergal's surgery
    tomorrow" ( post of Oct. 3rd) and under "Approved for Forteo" (post of Oct.
    9th). For some reason, not everything shows up if you just do a regular search.

    Haven't posted in the last few weeks because I am tired, tired, tired. Awaiting
    results of blood tests from my family doctor to see if I'm anemic or anything.

    Best wishes to everyone. I've been reading the forum and thinking about you
    all--just exhausted, that's all.

    I'll post more soon.

    Mary

    Glad to see you on the other side of surgery, Mary. I think I saw most of your posts in the First Time surgery and accidently posted in Revision. Will blame it on either the hydroconon-acetaminophen or my blonde/gray hair.

    Get lots of rest...when we are tired it's our bodies screaming at us to take it easy. I have a hard time doing that myself.

    Welcome back!
