I had my surgery yesterday. I woke up after surgery so nauseous and in pain. I try heaved once. My throat is also bloody and swollen. My Dr. this morning told me when I woke up from surgery I was trying to rip the tube out of my mouth/throat, so I probably hurt myself. I'm doing better today. Painful on the left side of my abdomen, but I'm able to get up and walk. It took hours for my bladder to wake up yesterday. I couldn't pee, but am doing fine now.

So sorry to hear of the throat issue. Ice chips can help. Mine wasn’t as sore but ice chips were my very best friend the entire hospital stay.

I hope the remainder of your recovery is easier. How is your nausea now!

I had my surgery yesterday as well. Virtually no nausea and was able to walk. I’m back home today and have some pain. I had a hiatal hernia that had to be fixed.

Isn't it crazy? Aside from the pain in one incision, I actually feel better than I did pre-op.

Ice chips were lovely after surgery! And my heating pad[emoji173] for my stomach (used it for 2 solid weeks!) Sorry about your throat.

Walk, walk and more walk. I had a sore throat from the tube but it healed in a day or two. First few nights I “slept” sitting up on my couch and otherwise paced the house to get all the gas out. Gas x doesn’t help since it’s within your abdominal sac. Ask for zofran or something comparable for the nausea and don’t be afraid to ask for more pain meds. I took liquid oxycodone on and off for at least a week and supplemented it a bit with leftover hydrocodone during that time and occasionally after I quit the oxy but when I really needed sleep or felt especially sore. I was fine most of the time but others felt like a train wreck. The liquid diet was really rough on my energy level.
