Had the NF for a paraesophageal hernia on Tuesday. Most of my stomach was in my chest. The surgery went well. I'm still in a lot pain through my midsection but full liquids are going down fine. The first day with NO liquids was tough. Just 5 little bandaids over staples. I hope all continues to go this well.

Congrats, I guess. Best wishes anyway. Take the pain meds when you need them, actually before, because it takes a while for them to start working. Don't worry about getting "hooked."

You are luck to get full liquids so soon! I was lots longer with just clear. Don't push ahead too fast. You'll be amazed how fast the liquid phase goes by. Even if you are allowed to eat real food, don't do it if you aren't SURE it will get past the wrap. The thing will be swollen for a couple of weeks minimum. Slow and easy wins the race!
