Had my Rplnd this morning at 10..... Finished at 12:45. I chose the epidural and have no regrets. I had pain when I first woke up they made an initial adjustment and I hit the button and have been good since. Was hitting button every 10 mins more out of worry how much it would hurt if I didn't for a few hrs. Since then I had them lower the epidural to a 4 and haven't hit button once. I have been doing breathing and leg exercises no problem. Only issue I have so far is a raised temp 100. SO I am going to start doing breathing exercises more.
The best news is..... They found nothing during the modified template surgery. Doc said I should be officially put on surveillance once they get pathology to take a really good look at everything. Said he is expecting it all to be fine!! Let's hope. Any questions about RPLnD let me know. Will answer between naps....
