greetings all! i'm officially in the club!
had my surgery today. woke up a bit out of it, been fading in and out of sleep since. I've been able to move around and get myself to the bathroom a couple times now and the pain/discomfort is not as bad as i anticipated (though to be fair i am on meds, not sure how i'd feel without those
my surgeon was pleased with how things went and feels that this will have a very positive outcome. i do my barium swallow tomorrow and we'll see then. I will keep you all posted, hoping to post a success story as good as GazeboGal's!
thanks for the knowledge and support you provide, it made me feel totally prepared for today.
