First Post Since Surgery



Well I am 3 days out and it has been fairly easy. I followed the liquid diet just about to a T and it paid off. My surgeon said it was the easiest surgery he had ever done. Everything went perfectly. Even the nurses were impressed that I was doing so well. Now honestly the first night I thought I was going to die. I kept getting gas bubbles that would cause me to gag. Everytime I gagged I thought my stomach was going to explode. When they say walk they really mean it. If I had walked more earlier in the day I would not have had these issues at night. The other kicker was the morhine made me sick as well. I think if I could have avoided the gaging I would have been on top of the world. All in all I am 3 days out now and still even with the gagging I am glad I did it. I am not having any issues with getting my liquids in and have been really shocked at how excited I have been about my pureed food. The other kicker is I started today. I think this actually has caused some of the pain and bloating that I have but just think...by the time I go back to work I will be done with it all for a month. :rolleyes: Just trying to look for the positive. And to boot I have my pain medicine for surgery so the cramps have been virtually nonexistant or at least I havent really had to deal with them :D . Well I need to get off here and go take another lap around the house before its time for another nap.
