Sleeved and doing great!

Rate this Entry
I am now 4 days post op and i'm feeling pretty darned good! The first 24 hrs after surgery were pretty rough, but no one should expect a cake walk at that point. Dr. Almanza came in and told us that the first 24 hrs are going to be very rough, because hey, you just had surgery. He did take time to address any issues and answer uestions while we were in the recovery room. It got better and better as time passed. Those gas bubbles are quite painful at first, but I can say that today, they aren't as bothersome. My overall experience in TJ went as expected, I had no bad experiences, I felt that I was well cared for.
