  1. I had surgery Thursday May 28 and went back to work today, June 2. I am very fortunate to work from home though so can take a quick nap if needed. But I felt great!
  2. Did anyone have a whooshing pulsating sound in their ear/head after surgery?
  3. I am feeling so much better today!! I am most freaked out about getting the drain removed. Does that hurt?
  4. Ugh does this ever get better!! I hurt! Pain meds hurt my sleeve. I can only take a teaspoon sip at a time. Is that normal? Bad gas pain in my shoulder. I think the hernia repair is more uncomfortable than my sleeve
  5. I have to check in in 7 hours!! I'm nervous, excited, anxious, but ready to start this journey! Any tips for surgery day and initial recovery?
  6. What feelings did you have right before surgery? I know this is what I want to do but I just feel blah about it lately. My surgery is in 2 weeks and has been scheduled since March.
  7. Not sure why you would have an NG tube?My doc uses it to run dye to check for leaks.

    I am most looking forward to not having to use a gallon of lotion if I want to put some on! Oh and wearing shoes with laces!!
  9. I had that with a gallbladder removal and it was an allergy to percocet
  10. I am getting so excited! I don't have a preop diet and my surgery is in 4 days!!!!!! I can't believe it is here! I think I am most nervous about the NG tube they take out when you're awake
  11. My aunt is in her 60s and has had huge success! She is why I decided to do this!
  12. Nice! Is your last name Good?
  13. What is the physical recovery like? I have an 8 month old baby, a 4 year old and I work from home. How restricted week I be with the kids? I also need to be back working 6 days after surgery. Is that doable?
