Our Admin. goes under the knife....

Postby Cheryl Jones » Apr 10, 2008 8:16 pm

CaveChatters,

Wayne, our dedicated CaveChat and OnlineCavers administrator, goes under the knife on Friday to have routine surgery for a somewhat serious condition. :sadbanana: :sad: Keep him in your thoughts and prayers! :pray: (I prefer not to give details to protect Wayne's privacy! I know you understand.)
I've asked him to post a note when he's recovered enough to get to a computer to let us know how he's recovering. :cavechat:

Graveleye and NZCaver are filling in for him doing the important admin jobs until Wayne returns. Thanks guys! :thanks:

We're kinda family here on CaveChat, so I thought you all would want to know.

Glad to hear it's "routine" ...even though serious. Here's hoping the best for Wayne.

Thanks for the good thoughts, everyone.

They surgery went well (have prostate cancer and had my prostate removed) and I doing my walks around the hospital corridor as rested and low and behold, the section I'm had a computer station for relatives or patients. So here I am, sittin my hospital gown using it.

They did a DaVinci robotic surgery on me so I have 5 small incisions instead of one long one but I'm pretty sore, as you image.

I was on a two-day clear liquids diet up untill the surbery so I was really hungry this morning and I ordered a breakfast burrito and when I saw my doctor later, he wasn't thrill thats what I had on an empty stomach.

When I first mentioned I had prostate cancer and was going for a full removal to some caving buddies, several of them said they had it to.

I'm stil a little doped up so I hope this post makes sense.

I got home a couple of hours ago after three days at the hospital. am very sore and, like Cheryl said, the gas is the worst (they pump some time of gas into your body cavity to get everything separate so they can see stuff better and It's really hard to get rid of because it hurts to bear down. But I was in a private room last night and I'm sure it sounded that campfire session in Blazing Saddles.
