I hear ya. I was up walking the day after and got myself out of the hospital 4 days later. I just wanted to be home with my girlfirend on my couch. Roomates and the vital signs every 15 minutes don't allow for much sleep. The post-op pain is just so intense. Very sore. They gave me oxycodone for the pain and like you, I try to use as little as possible. They are mad at me for that too. It is a catch 22, the more narcotic you take, the more constipated you get. Constipation is not something a CD patient wants to hear. So, I am grinning and bearing it. In all, as bad as it is, it is psychologically and physically more manageable than a Crohn's flare. I was flaring every two weeks while on prednisone,so there was no choice as far as surgery goes. I agree, the Drs made big claims to me too about what surgery would do. I was told to expect a great quality of life and that I will wish I had done it sooner. I am a realist, so I haven't gotten my hopes up. I am sorry to hear you are vomiting. It is depressing, I know it all too well. As far as hearing good news, I feel ya. Its been a long time since I have heard good news. I experienced a 5 year remission as a teenager and have been waiting for it again. Now at 29, I am just so tired of working to accomodate this monster. I have a lot of support, and I am not going to let CD win. I refuse too. Hang in there, others say it is at least 6-8 weeks before you feel better after surgery. I trust the people here more than the docs on that one. Take care.
