Well 10 days post op and the lump in my throat (which was almost unbearable yesterday), is just about gone this morning. I think I am finally on the other side of this. Still on liquids per doc until Monday. They are pretty addiment about sticking to the two week rule, but that's ok. Have been following their orders pretty much to the tee. Still have a little trouble with taking in a deep breath, but I am sure that will pass as well. It has given be great comfort to read about everyone else's healing so I didn't freak out sometimes.
Not one inkling of heartburn/GERD, yah!!!
