Geez, Charlie, I've been really worried about you since we haven't heard anything! Sooooo glad it's over and you're OK. You will live, you know! Try to avoid those pain killers as much as you can, especially if they aren't doing much good anyway - most of them are narcotic based and cause major C!!! I will email you shortly.Is this your "new" neck???

Hey Charlie, It wasn't but about 2 months ago that I had surgery, so I can vividly remember how you're feeling and I feel sorry for you buddy. Just take it easy, take your pills and take your time.Becky

Hey Charlie-Sounds like a rough past few days!! I'm glad to hear that your surgery went well and you're home. I have been wondering how you are. Try to relax and get some sleep. Hopefully, you'll be up and feeling better in no time!

Charlie, so glad you are even well enough to have come to the computer and let us know how you are doing.. I wish you a very speedy recovery. Those pain pills are killers. Thought I was having a heart attack from mine. Plus they gave me a headache.

Hello CharlieI am so glad to hear from you. I have been something similar and I know the pain that you are feeling. I also looked like Mrs. Herman Munster. I remember just crying and crying when I looked in the mirror. I thought I looked so hideous.Today the scar about 8" long (from ear to ear)is almost hard to see. I never believed this would happen. It just is there in the fold of your neck.Hey, where the heck is the submandibular gland anyway?Please take care of yourself and rest. Your body has been through alot.Lindalabergin###liberty.edu

Charlie,So glad you made it ok.
Now you have to let yourself heal which means lots of rest. Try MEGA fluids to curb the Constipation... I'm on pain killers also and have finally succumbed to actually taking them. Not fun I know, but pain is not good either. Take care of yourself ok???? Glad to see CHARLIE back on board!!!Deb

Glad to hear you're alive and kickin on the BB. I've missed your postings Charlie. Now go lay down and watch some 3 Stooges or something to keep your humor level up and the pain level down. You can do all that researching when you're feeling better. Meanwhile we'll just have to dumb-down a little. Ha, ha. ------------------
