It is done and I am coherent. I had a discectomy because I had a completely herniated disc. I heard that the doctor told my friend that it was HUGE. He does not understand how I tolerated the pain as long as I did.
THAT CUZ I AM A WARRIOR PRINCESS... damnit! hee hee.
So after the surgery I had coffee. I know. I was thirsty and did not get my coffee that morning. Since I was able to hold down the coffee without feeling like puking they said I could eat anything I wanted. Whoo hoo! Where is the BUFFET!? My best friend, Hiroko, took me to an all you can eat chinese buffet then she took me home, tucked me in the bed and waited for me to sleep. She stayed until 8pm. I LOVE her soooo much. She called my dad and my mom and told them that I made it through and that I was doing just fine. Then she had me talk to them. I was doing great but groggy..
Thank you everyone for all your kind thoughts and prayers.... I cannot be greatful enough to all of you!

yay! K is okay! And no more pain :) I'm glad the surgery went well and that you're not feeling sick or anything. Pretty soon you'll be able to go back to your diet and exercise and lose that weight that you don't want anymore » LostSoul13

wow! I'm so glad everything went great. I knew this kid recently who had a herniated disk while he was vacationing in Puerto Rico... he was totally incapacitated by the pain and his friends had to carry him home to his villa. You are obviously way more tough than that!! ;) » Zanzibar

Yeah, well... it WILL be the fun stuff, after all the safety training is through and the rest of the paperwork is completed. Until then, though, it's just a bother. Poop.
How goes the horizontal life? (LOL, that sounds wrong.) » ranor

Sixth College is a "mini college" within UCSD. and it's the newest one, so everyone keeps saying it sucks.. which is very discouraging for me... >. » dis1girl
