Welcome to the other side. I never heard of hiccups as a side effect of surgery.
Well, time to get up and get walking. A little bit at a time. They had me up and walking around the nurse's station 10 hours after surgery.
Getting out of the hospital today?
Take it easy, you have had major surgery with your plumbing reworked. Hope your recovery goes well. Good luck with your pathology report.
