Thanks for the update...hope she will start to feel better soon. I've had many friends who had this surgery...and I had my appendix out with added adhesion removal by scope....and usually you are up and running fine by a week...
The most painful part is the "air" that gets trapped in there that they use...So when it would go up in my shoulders...ouch!...
Hopefully tomorrow she can go home with some Percocets but then only need them for a day or two max for the worst pain...I'll keep the prayers for the recovery.
Again...glad to hear it went well..
