They automatically gave me zofran. Toward the end of my stay they would ask if I wanted it (I always said yes).

I only had nausea when I tried to drink, either ice chips or ice Water. The one time they left it and I drank it room temperature, I didn't get any nausea so experiment with temps if it's bothering you.

I tend to be a sleepy, ready to doze anywhere kind of person, but I slept a lot. I barely remember the day of surgery, just vaguely a visit from the surgeon and possibly from the nurses very late. I did wake up enough to post a few things online, but brief and not that coherent.

The second day I dozed most of the day except when I'd get up to pee and walk about every two hours with periodic check ins online.

Day 3 I tried to doze a little, but knowing I was going home, I was on alert for updates and I actually even turned on the TV for a few minutes. I did take a nap when I got home.

During my time off, I did nap periodically and realized I was definitely feeling more normal when I stopped needing to.
