    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers. I can not comment on the surgery as I do not know what all they did. They did not call my friend that she knew of - no message or caller ID to say they called.

    While in the hospital I asked everyone who can in to see me they was done and all I was told is I need to ask my Dr when I see him because they weren't there. My appt. for staple removal is Sept. 25th.

    I do know they removed the hardware because I rec'd it all in a jar so I can make my shadow box with all of it from past surgeries.

    I am in a lot of pain and can't sit for long - I am suppose to have nurses care but still haven't heard when they are coming. I'll write in as I can, thanks again, Deb
