    LOL Tink you have never had any sort of surgery in your tummy area have you?

    After 2 c-sections and an appendix surgery..believe me you do not want to cough...even if they make you...heck you dont even want to breath deep...

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    A group of us got fed up and went walkies to the tuck shop in our nighties and surgical stockings... what a right sight it was but we couldn't care less! We'd got cabin fever real bad.

    You are. They need to make sure you don't get pneumonia. It hurts like the devil to cough after surgery though.

    I don't think they teach you that now. At least I don't have any recollection of it.

    The last op I had last year they tell you to remember to cough. I had a nurse every now and then asked me if I'd done my coughing exercises.
