Surgery yesterday- my experience



Recommended Posts

I had a sleeve done yesterday, late morning, and I am about 24 hrs out.

My doc put me on gabapentin the day prior, and I had some dilautid in recovery. SO much LESS pain than I anticipated. I was about to drink Water and broth all afternoon and night with minimal discomfort. Walked twice up and down the halls... today am feeling well enough to get out of bed alone use the bathroom and walk without assistance. Had a tiny (1/2) dose of some narcotic overnight, more as a precaution, otherwise have been comfortable with Tylenol and torodol.

Good luck to all the upcoming surgeries!
