    Surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    The surgery was the most awful experience of my life. I hope never to have to feel that kind of pain again. It was awful! I spent 8 days in the hospital. Things are thankfully better now and I am recovering. I know that the surgery was needed but it was extremely painful.
