Bypass Surgery starts soon



Recommended Posts

Guys I'm so scared and nervous, I know this will be the start of a fantastic journey but surgery terrifies me. Only part I'm worried about is how ill feel when I wake up. Any encouraging thoughts or words would be much appreciated. Wish me luck!!

you'll do fine! All I really remember feeling the first day or two was TIRED! I slept most of the time. I really didn't have any pain. I felt a little nauseated the day of surgery, so I let the nurses know - they put Zofran in my IV line, which really helped. Other than that, it really was much better than I'd expected. Good luck to you!

Good luck! I was pretty miserable when I first woke up, but once I got to sip some Water and walk around, I was ok. I had surprisingly little pain and didn't need to take any pain medication, even Tylenol. When I first woke up, I did have the feeling of, "What have I done?! Why did I do this to myself?" and I think that is pretty common in the beginning, but for most of us, that goes away and we end up being very happy that we went through with it. I hope that doesn't make you more nervous or anything; my point is just that it is a big adjustment, but remember that you had very good reasons for getting this surgery, and don't get discouraged if it's hard at first.
