Don't do it, not the night before surgery. If you must do it, do it a couple of nights before. But if you need to be on a clear Fluid diet a set number of days before surgery make sure you have the burger before that.

MY wife says, "No way!" So if I do it, I will have to sneak out for lunch on Wednesday. That could work, since I have my pre-op testing at 10 AM.

i was intubated for surgery and my throat is still sore to a degree, I had my surgery on 5/20/21

My voice coach told me to ask them to use the smallest tube possible. She said the probably won't agree to a 5, but might agree to a 6. And to tell them I'm a singer, and ask them to be VERY careful putting the tube in and taking it out.

If I was having a voice procedure (I need a minor one every ten years or so) my voice doc would be watching out for me.

Good luck with surgery!

Surgery went fine, according to the doc. I am in a room for one or two nights. I’m typing on my iPad, which I hate.

Much to my dismay, they seem to have developed an aversion to narcotics since my last surgery. Their first try for pain due to having your guts rearranged was two Lidocaine Patches.

One day post-surgery, my pain is very well controlled using just Tylenol. That’s a bit of a surprise, since my neck surgery took all kinds of narcotics. I’ve been up walking a couple times.

The only hitch is slightly elevated white blood cell count. The doc says elevated WBC is normal. They will check it again, and if it’s not trending up, I can go home today.

heme = Yay!

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.
