OLD poster (10 years ago) back to say hello

Postby sidra19680521 » 24 Apr 2019, 18:00

Hello!! I used to go by sidra1968, but had to re-register. Once in a while I think of you all and where everyone from those terrible days back in 2009 ended up. We all grew "close" here during our struggles and without this board I would have freaked out back then. This forum helped me immensely.

I will try to find my old posts, but bottom line is I demanded the LIS as soon as I could, and after the initial ups and downs after surgery (which was a breeze)..here I am TEN years later and never even think about it really. I do still take Miralax every night, but other than that...it's like those dark, dark days of the hot poker AF never happened.

So stay strong and know it can get much better!!
