Let the games begin as this warrior is ready! I was supposed to check out of the hospital last Saturday morning but just got home tonight. Turns out that if the surgeon does not stitch the something to either some fat or something else lying around, some people's stomaches twist and flop shut. So I got to stay at the hospital. They thought if I stayed on liquids it would relax, the swelling would go down and I would be good to go.

Well, it did not happen. They had to order a stent for me. Put it in today and MAGICALLY I can keep food, liquids and my own spit down! It is a real accomplishment!


The cuts are tiny and healing great...... I am starting out on something big and life altering here!.:cursing:

glad you are finally home... as a nurse i am surprised that the doctor did not know to do this stitch at the time of surgery.... i guess he/she will not make that mistake again. i guess the extra time with out food helped with the weight loss???? so glad you are doing better

Sorry to hear about your complications. No fun. Will the stint be something permanent or will it be taken out at some point? Hope you are feeling better now.
