I have my surgery on yesterday afternoon. Surgery went really well. I woke up and it was a little nauseous for a while but they’ve been really good about controlling and so I didn’t throw up at all. I’m literally having no pain except for one area which is that my diaphragm. There is an incision really close to it so I can’t tell if it’s the incision that is making an egg or if it is trapped gas from the surgery. Either way it’s going very smoothly and I’m feeling pretty good now that the anesthetic has worn off. I’ve been walking a lot which is good and it appears they’re going to discharge me in about 10 hours from now. So I’m pretty stoked. Just want this diaphragm pain to subside. The only reason I’m starting to think it’s from the incision right there is because it when I take Tylenol it feels slightly better.

Congratulations!!!

I biggest discomfort I experience is from the large incision where the pull everything out. Try to stay ahead in meds rather than trying to catch up when the pain become greater.

Did they tell you to keep a small pillow handy? You should hold it against you belly if you have to sneeze or cough.
