Home from VSG on Monday
Aug 18, 2010Hello friends,
I am home from the hospital. I got home last evening at7ish. My surgery was the previous morning at about 8am - it lasted about 2.5 hours.
The surgeon said all went well. We did a sip test and no leaks.
It took the cafeteria at the hospital many hours (over 3) to have a tray of bariatric liquids delievered to my room- which made for a miserable morning. But I made it ok. They kept me til 5 to have another tray for dinner.
It was just broth, jello, popsicles and crystal light.
My nurses were great and the program has a Bariatric Coordinator who was like an angel. The unit's doctor manager was also a good guy.
It was good to sleep last night without being woken up once an hour for vitals....
I am ok - pain in belly (upper area) - how long will this last? I even have an area on the upper left that is numb (skin only) now. Is this normal?
I am on delauded. I don't tolerate codeine. Can you tell me how I should feel on the delauded - cause I only don't feel the stomach pain as much - but I don't feel "good" or flying... at all.
I think I am fine- but I don't think I'll be able togo into work for a meeting tomorrow or Friday. I thought I would be able to to...
I am still happy I made this decision - but I am wondering when I'll feel a bit more normal again. Did you all have this drain thingy ? The JP?
Take care adn thanks for the answers, if you can and have amoment,
