I’m about 48 hours post-op. Surgery was Monday at 10am. No complications.



Monday and Tuesday were rough. I felt like I was in much more pain than I should have been. I couldn’t reach or bend and getting in and out of bed or in and out or a sitting position was so excruciating I would yell whenever I felt the incision pain. The hospital (Mass General in Boston) thought I was doing well and discharged me yesterday, about 28 hours post-op. The ride home was painful, even in the passenger seat, reclined. I definitely felt a lot of regret, especially on Tuesday, which was more painful than the 12 hours after surgery.



I haven’t been sleeping well. It was very hard to sleep in the hospital, even with earplugs. The longest period of sleep I’ve had was this morning, from like 6am to 9am. The gas pain is subsiding, and the incision pain is less than it was last night. I’m up now walking in circles around the around and taking little sips of Gatorade Zero and Premiere Protein. Feeling a lot better than yesterday. Extra strength Tylenol and occasional oxycodone only when absolutely needed is helping, as well as ibuprofen, which I can only take through tomorrow.

When did the pain kick in for you? Im in the hospital, my procedure was at 2pm. Right now I have very little pain. Just some soreness. I keep waiting for it to come but nothing. Hoping I’m in the clear.

I had only minor gas pain as long as I was lying completely still. However, getting in and out of bed caused a minute or so of excruciating incision pain. But once I was walking, it helped a lot with the gas pain. In terms of days and pain, they went like this from most to least painful: 2 (discharged), 1 (surgery), 3, 4 (today). I’ve been using the oxycodone less and less, and I can finally sleep on my left side.

I’ve had no trouble keeping clear or full liquids down, and I’m tolerating nonfat Greek yogurt, Jello, and V8. I actually consumed almost 600 calories today with no discomfort, and I’m starting to feel hungry again, which worries me...

I’m doing pretty well on Water intake, 60 oz today. I had 22 oz of Protein Shake yesterday, I’ll get in 26 oz today. I tried a sugar free popsicle but it was way too sweet. Yesterday I got 2200 steps in, today I’m at 4200. Yesterday I took two naps, today only one. Baby steps, but I’ll take it!

I came home last night (8/15) and showered. Now adjusting to life again. Sip sip sip is right! I thought I would be so stoked for something other than liquids...so far no desire for food or liquid of any kind! I am hoping to try thinned yogurt in the morning.

Feeling hungrier. I put some light whipped cream on Jello, but my stomach didn't like it. I'm guessing because of all the air in the whipped cream. Still living on yogurt, Protein Shakes, and Gatorade Zero. I've tried broth a couple times, but hot liquids just don't taste good to me right now.
