I had a Nissen Fundoplication with a minor Hiatal Hernia repair, on Friday 12th November. I stayed in hospital 2 days during which time a poor job was done of pain management, and came home Sunday 14th.
Since that time I have been religious about my full liquids diet, resting but still walking...all sounds good except for the fact that I have uncontrolled pain in my chest. I feel like I've been sucker punched; my ribs are sore and I am in tears almost daily because I am finding it hard to rise above the pain and function on any meaninful level.
It's been 10 days, and I'd really like to hear from anyone who can share their own storey, or offer me some advice :(
