I feel very lucky after reading about your experience over the four days. I had none of the problems you experienced and was able to do it as an out patient with little complications. I only hucked twice. Great job making it through it. The worse is over and you will start to feel better and better every day. They only told me to wear a mask for the time that my immune system was compromised near zero. You may need to wear it more since I was never really around alot of people since we rented a condo and I had my own car to go back and forth to the hospital. Near the end of the proceedure I was going out to lunch but I was able to eat outside since it was summer. You are over the hump so keep your chin up. It is all down hill from hear.
