Sherrie pasted her leak test yesterday, happy dance :). She did have a fever for a while, she has been doing well with her IS and coughing. She has had some gas pain. She has been a real trouper and is in good spirits. Oops,it was demerol that made her nauseated, not morphine. I am having surgery Aug 8th, Sherrie has been a real inspiration to me. I want to thank her and her family for letting me be with them through this special time. Happy Happy Dance I just spoke with Sherrie and she is being discharged today. She will be posting for herself soon.
I am Sherrie Stocktons angel, I am happy to report that she is now on the other side. Her surgery on 6-27, started at 9:30 and was finished at 2:30, and it went very well. She was in recovery till 6:30 PM. She had pain behind her knee and they were concerned about a blood clot. So they did an ultrasound which I am glad to report was negative. She had a little problem with nausea that stopped when she quite using the morphine pump. Her only pain has been in her hips and back which toradol seems to help. She was awake most of the night unable to sleep. Today she goes for her leak test. I will post more later after her test. She is in good spirits and her DH has been at her side.
I just wanted to send my warmest wishes to you for a successful,easy surgery and recovery. I will have you in my prayers along with your family and surgeon. Just think, in no time you will be feeling better and moving on to life on the LOSING side! Congratulations!! Hugs
I will be thinking of you tomorrow and in the weeks to come. Dr. Dally will be doing my surgery sometime in the next three months and I know what a terrific team they have. I hope to meet you at a support group meeting soon.
May you have a peaceful, healthy trip through surgery & recovery.
