So I'm sitting in the hospital wanting to go home. I am on full liquids and I hate cream of wheat/rice whatever it is. I don't drink coffee and they keep trying to make me drink that too. I have been doing tons of walking. I am still full of gas and they won't give me food until its gone. My IVS keep inflitrating and my veins keep blowing up. I'm having more of a difficult time than anticipated. My incision looks good, its small. I just want to be able to eat and poop again like normal (well as close as I can come). Sorry for the rant...any advice would be appreciated!!!!

Sorry glaciergrl you're having a hard time.
But your almost there!

I don't have any advice, since I haven't had that surgery, but I wanted to give you encouragement.
Have a positive attitude will keep you less stressed, and make your recovery easier.

Why can't you get rid of the gas? You can't toot? Is is b/c not all of your guts are awake?
