Hey gang! Friday was my surgery - all went smoothly. It took a little longer than anticipated and the test afterwards pushed me over the edge! The surgeon was able to do it laparscopically - so that is good for healing but also why it took a bit longer. However, yesterday during the painful ride home I was wondering what in the world I had done to myself! Like I asked for this?
I don't think I was expecting all of the gas pain. Which was absolutely positively the worst! I walked all night on Saturday night 1.) because I could get in bed because the gas hurt so much and 2.) because my 85 year old roomates daughters had a few too many drinks and were bickering in some other language in the bed next to me. I was close to asking the nurse to ask them to leave as it was way past visiting hours - but I sucked it up and it was probably all for the best.
Today I feel pretty good. A little tired, a little weak, and a little gassy but have only had tylenol one time. The pain is now bearable and I am on my way to a healthier me!!!
More later ...
