i'm so sorry for the post below re: my surgery. it didn't even cross my mind that it might be inappropriate or in violation of the website's terms of service. i was thinking along the lines of just getting feedback from knowledgeable cyber nurse-friends, many of whom are women, who may have had experiences with abdominal surgeries w/cesarean sections and the like.i will definitely speak to my surgeon. i am so sorry! clearly, i am not thinking so clearly. let's hope it's just post-surgery brain, haha :imbar.
