I'm so unlucky it's even funny!!!

Some of you may remember I recently had a major spinal surgery done:

http://www.jemsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44143

6 weeks after, I'm starting to walk a few blocks per day, drive a little and even sit and play some guitar...a very good recovery according to my physician, everything was going great, but...

Last tuesday, a small belly ache starts and quickly gets worse...long story short: I had appendicitis!!!! so wednesday night I went under the knife AGAIN, this time after a quick visit to the ER!

What's the odds of that? 2 surgeries in 6 weeks? damn!!!! At least, both procedures had no complications and I have a good health insurance plan, so the medical bills won't be as huge as one could expect!

It hurts to be on the wrong end of the pain stick -speaking from experience- Sounds like you got good treatment and care, that goes a long way. Chin up and move onward, stay dedicated to rehab it really works.

Imagine how boring rehab would be if you didn't play guitar.

Well, on the postive side they caught the appendicitis before it was too late, but I know where you're coming from. Onward and upward!
