My surgery was at 11 am yesterday, and I was on my way home at 6 pm. This gas thing is no joke. Not to scare anyone, but I haven't had any other problems besides the gas from inflating your abdominal cavity. Just feels like I have indigestion real bad. I've found that rocking and changing positions frequently has helped. I've also been walking a rut in the house lol It was interesting mixing my uso and calcium together last night. I put it in some V8 Tropical juice, but it floated right to the bottom. I drank as much as I could but ultimately dumped it. Today, I think I'm going to use a spoonful of applesauce instead. I've also decided that I'm going to try "seasoning" my stomach next time I take my pain meds. That's the only time I've felt a little queezy during this whole thing.
If anyone has any other suggestions on how to get through this time, I would greatly appreciate any words of wisdom. Good luck to all who have their surgeries soon, and to all those who are on the other side already, it's only downhill from here! (In a good way :) )
