If anyone sent me a pm, and I didn't answer, I'm sorry, just let me know, my brain seems to have taken a vacation, and yes I'm fine, the surgeon said I might be forgetful for a couple of weeks, I think he's a lair and sent my brain to Mars, just for the fun of it, lol, at least I remembered to put the empty ice cream container back in the freezer, gotta laugh with me or at me, either will be fine,

You are a real trooper and I will be thinking of you and praying that the fog lifts soon.

What that surgeon didn’t do is take your wonderful sense of humor! Hope you are feeling much better soon.

If you were given anesthesia, you may have short term memory malfunction for a month or more. Older people have more difficulty with this than younger people. Anesthesia usually consists of more than one drug. Of course pain killers are given either locally or as a general anesthetic. Amnesia drugs are also given depending upon the surgical procedure. They might not be given for surgical procedures that only require local anesthetics but are almost always given with general anesthetics. Besides waiting for the return of muscle strength after surgery, anesthetics may cause delayed response to driving situations. That is why your surgeon will estimate when it may be safe for you to return to driving or operating heavy equipment. You are experiencing a "not uncommon" reaction Janallynbob. Glad you can laugh about it.

Anesthesia does that. Just because you come out of the recovery room, out of "anesthesia", doesn't man that you are ready to join the world.

I just had major surgery to take out the rare liposarcoma that was intertwined with my kidney. By by to both.

Couldn't go home to recuperate because I broke my foot two before surgery, and need someone to help me get to the commode, etc. I am in a rehab facility.

What a revolting situation.

You are recovering. Sleep, read, knit, post on KP, but give your body and mind a chance to heal.

I know, easier said than done. I'm suffering with you.

Thank you, it was a general, double mastectomy, you should have seen me walking the hallway, I'm wondering around, not lost, no tree (didn't need it), at 4:30 in the morning, I looked like a duck getting ready to take off, and here the nurses come running, what's wrong they say, I'm, well you told me to walk or you would put those stupid boots back on me, I informed them they had no sense of fashion, they were not the least bit fashionable, and the color was "boring", they couldn't wait for me to be discharged, gotta laugh.

Take it easy on yourself, keep that kookie sense of humour, and give yourself time to recuperate

Hope things are getting better for you, I have had 2 surgeries in the last 4 months, a knee replacement & then a lumpectomy (right breast) & now facing chemotherapy & radiation.

My brain / memory have also taken a break so muddling along!

Best wishes to you, I enjoy your posts.
