 If so for what? Did you go under? What was your recovery time?

I had c-sections with both pregnancies. I was just numb from the waist down. My recovery with the first one was about a month or so. After the second one...the recovery time was less.

 I had a csection with DD, i felt great after 2 weeks, but the dr said it was being I was younger and my body healed super fast Ill expect with my next it would be 1+ months.

I go for a small surgery at the end of sept. Im a little nervous.

A few times

"hyernia repair" turned out to be a mass on my liver. Day surgery turned into a 5 day hospital stay. It took me about another 5 days to recover at home before I was functional.

Csection-I wasn't knocked out so I recovered a lot quicker. Drove cross country 3 weeks after surgery.

New one on Oct 13 to fix my finger that I damaged back in 1995.

I had an ablation for SVT done the beginning of 2009 and then a c-section with DS in 2010. I was put under for the ablation and was awake for my c-section

Having even the simplest of surgeries makes people nervous but I'm sure you'll be just fine. Did they tell you what the recovery time should be?

Yep -- had half my thyroid removed because they couldn't tell if the nodules were cancerous or not.  I was all prepared for a period of time in great pain and weight loss and agony because they gave me a prescription for 30 days of hydrocodone.  I bought PF Chang's chicken soup because it's the best soup EVER.  I was all set.  Had the surgery at night, miserable night because they sit you on this plastic thing because they don't want you to pee in their bed -- was up and eating graham crackers at 5 a.m.   So, no weight loss, no need for the soup but it tasted good and the hydrocodone is still sitting in my medicine cabinet or somewhere ... I worked myself all up for nothing.
