My laparoscopic RYN surgery is scheduled for February and I’ve been thinking about what it will be like post surgery. I would love to hear your perspectives on the topics below:
Did you have a drainage tube or catheter in the hospital?
Did you have to go home with a drainage tube?
Were you able to sleep on your stomach when you came home? If no, how long was it until you could?
I’ve heard people recommend having a pillow for your stomach? Does that help if your surgery was laparoscopic?
And last but not least...is there anything you wish you would have known about what you would experience after surgery.
I appreciate any feedback you can provide.
