july 16th i went home around 8 am..i could have gone home yesterday but i couldnt pee..lol everything went great..with the surgery no complications dr jay also fixed a hiatal hernia i had..
the leak test also went great..
let me tell you about day of surgery!! my husband and i were both nervous..for some reason i was realy calm though..we drove to 12 oaks hospital were i went straight to the 5th floor..they put me in a gown..took some blood..came in asked me questions..put my hospital braceletts on..and told me i was the second case..wich sucked because i got there at 5:30 am and i was not going to get to go in until 9am ..my mom ,dad and brother got lost on their way to the hospital..again(when my husband had surgery)..it was realy weird cause here we were all in a room waiting for them to take me downstairs..my parents and husband dont get a long..so it stressed me out..everyone behaved so far..lol..dr jay came in and talked to me before he did the first surgery..2 hrs before they took me downstairs they gave me the blood thinner as well..i hate needles so i gave myself little goals...took one needle at a time..lol
i was also nervous because when they take you down stairs they prep you with an iv and give you antibiotics and such and there you are waiting by yourself without fam antil its your time..my hubby waited downstairs for his surgery about 2 to 3 hrs..that must have sucked bad..when they took me downstairs i had a nice nurse who put my iv in and knew i was nervous so she let my husband come in to the holding to wait with me until surgery!!! yay..i had a nurse come talk to me that was going to be in surgery..and the magician who was going to put me to sleep..lol.. after a while he came back and said it was time he wheeled me to the OR and i moved to the or bed..he gave me a happy drug thru my iv and told me to breathe thru the mask..i was out...i was in and out when i woke up i remember the nurses telling me to breathe..i was in pain but not the omg type pain i was preety content..lol when my husband left i even flapped like a bird and gave him the monkey look like the family guy cartoon..the whole flapping thing is a inside joke..lol...
i went home on sunday because on saturday i couldnt pee after they pulled my catherer..lol i felt uncomfortable but i couldnt feel my stuff down there..lol so i didnt want to push to hard..lol when they took me off the drip morphene they put me on kids motrin yumm..lol and a nasal spray for the pain..one spray and i was completely out..lol
i have never had surgery before so when i went home i was in pain..so much that i kept saying to my hubby ...we arent having kids..lol but its been two weeks now and i changed my mind..lol
i went to see the doctor and he said i was healing great..yay i have been putting neosporin on my cuts..today is the 31st and i weighed 196..yay ..
