The NG tube is your friend...trust me. The day after my surgery, the nurse removed my NG tube. However, all of the bile started to build up in my stomach rather than being sucked out in the tube. By the next day, I was vomitting green/blackish bile. The nurse said that she had to replace the NG tube. ACKK! So, I was awake when they pulled it out the first time, then I was awake when they had to force the thing up my nose again and down my throat, and then I was there when they pulled it back out a few days later. I would have rather them leave it alone after my surgery. However, I felt very rushed to get out of the hospital after my surgery. Now, I am grateful for the NG tube. It prevents me from getting sick after surgery and throwing up that nasty and thick bile....that was so awful.
