I made it! 12 hours post-op

Rate this Entry
Well, I made it. I admit that when I woozily woke up and saw the people in the operating room, I thanked God and took a deep breath. I've been sipping on water and eating ice chips all day with the occasional sugar free popsicle. The broth isn't sitting too well. I didn't actually get sick but thought i was going to. Maybe my sips were too big, but in any case, I don't care to see broth again today!

The worst part for me at this point is the gas. They put gas meds in my IV so they wont' let me take any GasX strips. It helps I'm sure, but it's pretty painful at times. My surgeon said that he did fix a herniated something or other in my esophagus that was causing my reflux, so that's good. I haven't had any reflux but I haven't had anything to eat really yet.

Thanks to everyone who sent their thoughts and prayers! Hoping to go home tomorrow! Good night
