They do, but for me it was some next level gas pains, interestingly enough everyone in recovery room was dealing with it so I wonder if the OR team over inflated for the day? lol

Most the time, insufflation is set at a fixed number. Unfortunately, a lot of people retain some of the CO2 and it causes discomfort. Best thing to do is walk it out. My surgeon does her best to try to get all the gas out before she closes. So I’m hoping I don’t experience the gas pain too much post op!

I start my PreOp diet tomorrow....surgery on the 23rd. I’ve got 7 days of work left. I’ll go back to work 5/10.

I’m nervous and excited...not scared at all. I trust my team. They aren’t just OR staff, they are my friends. The CRNA is one of my most favorite people, last time I had surgery, she knocked my a$$ out. 🤣

Any recommendations on what to take in the hospital bag?

Comfy loose pants to walk around with, phone charger, dry mouth spray. They provided me with a toothbrush so I didn’t bring mine because I wanted to minimize how much I brought.

They may provide it but you will probably also want chap stick.
