Had surgery Less then 24 hrs ago and Im home already
Feb 12, 2011Wow,,,, the surreal feeling continues less then 24 hrs ago I was sleeved and already im home.
I just wanted to share with you my experience.
So my surgery was scheduled for 11am yesterday morning. However the case before me must of became very very complicated. I was literally climing the walls. My surgery ended up being delayed 5 hours. I was havintg all kinds of second thought ....thankfully my family convinced me to stay.
I was taking into the OR at 4 and my family was being notified that everything went well at 6:30pm. I was in my room by 8 and walking by 10. The worse part that I experienced thought out this whole thing has been when I woke up from the anathesia, I was in ALOT of pain and OMG MY MOUTH AND THROAT WAS SOOOOOOOOO DRY.
I was dying for ice chips and chapstick. Well I must of looked pretty good to the nurse cuz I sked if I could please have some water and BANG... there it was. I sipped, sipped, sipped all night long. Morphine helped through out the initial pain I havent had any pain killers today til about 1hr ago.
Any ho... the surgeon came to visit me this morning and couldnt believe that I was so active and already sipping water. Hey quickly moved me up to a liquid diet which mean ... CRYSTAL LIGHT (which i brought to the hospital) my dry mouth was in heaven. Well... things moved quickly from that. Lunch time I was able to finish a little soup and have some jello... VERYYY LITTLE.
I am happy to say I havent thrown up once... after the anathesia nausea I havent felt nauseous or gassy at all. I am doing well and so happy to be home. Hope others will have the experience Ive had. The surreal feeling I had two days ago hasnt gone away :)
