So now once again my Surgery, revision, has been CANCELLED. was postponed for 3/18 to 4/25 now cancelled all together. ;-(

I'm so sorry. I wish people would take this social distancing seriously and give it a chance to work so we can get this damn virus under control.

It’s okay. I’m just throwing myself a pity party since getting the call this morning lol

The heartburn is horrendous still and I just want this over. My son is supposed to get married in June and wanted this under control ... plus worrying about them cancelling the wedding.

I get it and totally understandable, congratulations on your son's future nuptials! Where in New York are you? I'm on Long Island.

I think they are just trying to be safe, which I know is disappointing. I had my surgery on 3/2 and even my surgeon doesn't want me coming in for a post-op appointment, that will be done by video chat. I am doing well but I've been home. I will return to work next week due to being an essential employee.

I made it under the wire by 3 days and they cancelled on 3/15 for 3/18 the first time. I understand the safety aspect.
glad you’re doing well.
mine is just a revision so I’ll be okay.

I hope you used the breathing thing while you were and the hospital and while getting out to get your lung capacity as strong as it was before. I worry so much about just gotten surgery people to get the virus 🦠 Especially because I feel like right after surgery we're so weak and building up Vitamins back into our bodies. Stay safe and good luck.

I did use it while i was in the hospital however I forgot to pack it when I came home but I have been walking outside when the weather is good to build up my endurance. I start my soft food diet today and I'm thankful to finally be graduating! I would think that should help me to build more strength as well. I think the best thing we can do to fight this virus is to pray, be well rested, hydrated, and eat nutritiously. Thank you for the concern. You had your surgery a few days before me, how are you doing with your recovery?

I had my surgery on 3/9, the same day the hospital had their 1st 2 virus patients. One my 2nd day, they stopped allowing visitors. If I had known what was to happen, I would have postponed. No one should be in a hospital now unless they virus. The surgery also makes you high risk for virus. It's way too scary. I have not been able to have any post op visits, since my Drs office is in hospital. I live very close to Manhattan, and in a hotspot. I'm 6.5 weeks out and haven't seen a dr since.

I had my surgery on 3/2, I too have not seen my doctor in person for a follow up appointment but I did speak to my doctor over the phone with a concern and a video chat with my nutritionist. I live on Long Island so I’m right there with you in a hot spot. How are you doing since the surgery?

I’m in Riverhead. I only burp a lot, seems to be when I’m full or just about. I’ve been doing a lot of walking. The weight is not coming off as fast as I’d like since I started soft foods but overall I’ve done pretty well. I just have to be patient.

I have slacked on my exercise since surgery, I was going to pilates 3 days a week, but that is gone for now. I have done some walking, but I need a class setting to push me. Plus the weather has been shitty!
