So glad you found this site. Ken did a great job putting it together. I know that it has helped me a ton and I hope it does the same for you.
Yes, stay in the positive. I know that I had many negative thoughts running through my head too.
I am now 5 months out from my surgery and this is the best I have felt since.
Once that catheter came out things seemed to go at a quicker healing pace too.
You will get better. Everyday is better than the day before.
All the best,
