I came through the procedure and am at home and relatively comfortable.
I woke up, this morning, with a migraine but managed to get going (even though I couldn't take anything for it) and head for the fun. I got there and made it through the paperwork and preop preparations. They told me I would be getting some narcotics in my IV, and I hoped that would help with the migraine as well. It did take the sharp edges off until I was wheeled into surgery and put completely out.
Unfortunately, the migraine was waiting for me when I emerged from the anesthesia. Between the migraine and nausea, I was miserable and managed some real fine projectile vomiting (got some amazing distance). I finally recovered enough to head home and get in bed and actually fall asleep. I woke later with the migraine still holding on. Fortunately, the pain pill I took upon waking took care of my hands and head.
I can't do much of anything that requires any pressure or dexterity... about everything, but I do have my fingers free enough to type this update.
