I am a new member and just had the TIF procedure on 8/12/11. I also had a lap hernia repair. After sugery I woke up with severe headache and shoulder pain. I was never told anything about
that as a possibility. I had side effects to two of the medications they gave me ( severe itching and nausea) so I stopped taking pain medications in the hospital. They sent me home with liquid vicodin. At this point my shoulders, more the left, still hurts.I have a constant headache. I am using a heating pad and that helps. The first day or two when I ate jello I didn't get heart burn. The last two days any time I eat I get heartburn and I feel nauseous. Does this mean the surgery failed?? At this point I don't want to eat anything. Any advice from anyone whose gone through this before??
