    So I was wondering about the ice there. Susan said we drink bottled Water at the hospital, but what about the ice chips post op? I'm at the point where I am having all kinds of random questions in my head! Lol!

    Day 3 Post Op

    Iggychic - so sorry you have had a rough time! Hang in there, it will get better. What happened that you lost so much blood?
  9. Lissa- how soon after your surgery did you start working out? I am scheduled for 9/25 and am trying to do more walking but as my weight has gone up my feet hurt more and more.

    Personal Trainer

    Good for you!! Have fun!
  11. Lovenox injection needles are very small. It doesn't hurt, more like a pinch if you do it right. Thumb & forefinger about 2-3 inches apart, pinch up the skin FIRMLY (that kind of numbs the spot), clean & inject. It may burn a little after but DON'T rub or scratch the spot. It also helps to take a deep breath and exhale as you inject. Good luck!
