Just wanted to update everyone on my recovery.
Dermabond is gone now. Cuts are red and itchy lines.
No pain meds needed for 10 days now. No Antinausea meds for 12 days.
My constant cough I lived with for almost four years is gone!
I'm on mushy foods now (Things you would feed a baby).
As long as I eat slowly and don't overeat I don't have any discomfort.
I'm still limited to lifting no more than 5 pounds. I don't bend over for more than 5 seconds.
I've lost 14 pounds.
Pre-surgery: nexium 2X a day and a 300 zantac. Post-surgery: 1 nexium (which maybe gone soon as soon as the doctor says so).
I'm starting back to work on Tuesday.
