Thanks for the nice comments everyone...I finally got to come home today. Been home about a couple of hours now and it feels great. I am really really sore though in my stomach. Is it normal to feel a ton of pain and tightness with a full resection. Also, My wound is leaking quite a bit too. The doc said to clean it a couple of times a day but it will take more than that I think. They never really figured out what caused the lights to go out for a week but I got a 2nd infection that caused them to have to open me full up for the 2nd surgery. Any advice on how to make the pain as mild as possible...I took a shower when I got home and that was a major chore...walking even hurts right now.....
Yeah The doc told me how he wanted it cleaned. Pretty much like you said you did yours. Also, my mother-in-law is an r-n so that will help a lot too. The pain is pretty much in the incision where they cut me. It doesn't seem like it's because of infection or anything it's just where he cut me is sore. I'm hoping in a couple of weeks I will be a lot better off as far as any pain goes then I can deal with the rest of the recovery.
Thanks a lot.
