Hi Everyone! My first post-op went very well. Incisions are healing and was told to keep taking it "slow". Also to continue on full liquid diet, as that is what I feel I can tolerate. In other words, just as ya'll have stated "listen" to your body. The pathology on my Gallbladder came back and showed it was indeed infected. Every test for over a year+ (even being hospitalized several times) always came back negative. All this time and surgeon after surgeon saying, "you have classic symptoms for gallbladder disease" blah blah blah...but the tests are not showing that. Well I knew it, I knew it, I knew it. In my quest for trying to find out what was going on, I went to my GYN. When my pap came back highly abnormal, they did biopsies. The biopsies showed nothing significant. My Dr. wanted to do a procedure I wasn't comfortable with and I insisted on a hysterectomy. I have a very high cancer rate in my family and already had a tubal anyway. So long story short, after the hysterectomy, pathology report of my uterus/cervix came back and my Dr. was apologizing to me, as it was indeed a very high grade lesion and would have required a hysterectomy. We know our bodies! Now I am wondering if I truly have IBS or gastritis, as my symptoms seem to be more of gastritis. When I had an upper endo, it showed Duodenitis. But back to the Nissen, today I had a really scary attack of some kind I never had before. I ate my soup for dinner, was feeling fine, when literally in a second I broke out in a cold sweat and felt so nauseated I thought I was going to vomit. Immediately I took a zofran and laid down. It passed pretty quick thank goodness, in about
10 minutes I was fine. Just freaked out. I also way over did it with laundry and house cleaning. I think I will be camped out on the sofa again for the rest of the week. OUCH. People, listen to everyone here, and take things Slow. Also the swelling is I believe truly at it's peak, at day 14. Oh I don't like this feeling at all, and hope it improves Soon! Hope every one is doing well, and thanks again for all your support. This forum is a life saver!
