I'm sitting in my hospital room. It's 6:30 PM, and my surgery was 10:30-1. Aside from general discomfort (gas pains in shoulder, belly tenderness), I'm doing well. I'm also on morphine
I had "dinner," which consisted of jello/lemon ice/tea/clear protein drink.
I don't have any swallowing pain, but I am taking it easy on the swallow-size.
Overall, I'm optimistic and excited to potentially be done with reflux hundreds of times each day (confirmed by Bravo pH test).
Background, I'm a 33y/o male, and about
290 lb. I've had reflux since my early twenties at least. It definitely got worse as I gained weight over the years.
Let me know if anyone has questions. I will be discharged tomorrow, and pan to take 2-3 weeks off work.
