Three days after hernia surgery and am on other side of Discomfort Mountain. Cloudy thinking from anesthesia and pills is as bad as soreness. Weaning off them and should be my old self soon. One thing for sure I have learned from this is how lousy a drug addict I would be. Apparently it did not take much to knock me out Wednesday for surgery. And it took me a while to start talking again. But once engaged my nurse and I talked and talked.
