Surgery was 12-7
Dec 10, 2009I got home from Rex Hospital yesterday afternoon around 1:30 pm and I'm doing pretty good. I was concerned when I was discharged so soon after surgery because I had been told to expect to stay 2-3 days with gastric bypass. Had my surgery at 4:20pm On Monday and was home at 1:30 on Wed. I was still having a lot of drainage out of my tube into the ball, but Dr. Enochs assistant assured me that was normal. I worry that since they took the tube out before I was discharged that the buildup of fluid will not have anyway of getting out. I only had a little drainage onto the bandage since leaving the hospital. I'm walking, sipping on protein, deep breathing, and making sure that I do exactly what I was told. I have not vomited and I hope that I do not. I drink 1 oz every 15 minutes during the day time of liquid protein. My blood sugar is doing pretty good and I'm so hopeful that I will be able to get off of my blood sugar medication. I've cut the pain medication into half doses. I have pain when I do my breathing exercises and when I talk. I'll be happy when I'm 6-8 weeks post surgery.
