Just a quick little post to report that my surgery went well. I was in for about
2 - 2.5 hours and my doc said everything went smoothly. My biggest problem right now is my shoulder pain from the CO2. They had a very hard time getting it under control in the post-op recovery room and it hurts more than my chest/belly or my incision sites. But this is to be expected and I know it will pass, but ... ouchy!!
My case manager told me that tomorrow at lunch they will start to advance my clear liquid diet and if that goes well I should go home tomorrow evening. My doc has a pretty strict diet for his surgeries, but I'm perfectly happy taking it slowly. Whatever I can do to have a good and full recovery I will do.
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers from those who sent them! I'll post more updates soon.
