I don't want to mis-inform anyone. I did have complication after the surgery. I did end up having a second surgery 5 days later but not the NF. During the fist one a mishap happened which caused a second. We all should go in knowing that things can happen even with the most skillful doctors because as women we may have had other surgeries in our past (I had 2 C-section and 1 or 2 other surgeries) When I showed signs of complications (Yes, kept the same surgeon) I called her, met her at the hospital and showed her the pictures of what was happening. She explained everything that happened in detail to me and my sons. She and he hospital fixed it, allowed me stay in the hospital (30 days) and was on point with my recovery. My recovery from the second surgery was 1 month however, recovery from the NF was about
6 mons. I couldn't wear a bra for about
8 mons. (I read on this form about
the bra issues). BUT when all is said and done I DO NOT regret having the surgery it has truly given me back my healthy life. No more 10-12 pillows including sofa pills to sleep, no more meds for the acid reflux, no more garbage cans by my bed for spontaneous vomiting, I can go out to eat without worrying. I am enjoying every bit of my NEW life style. Plus it has so far solved my allergies from birth issues. I am enjoying going outside and taking deep breaths and not coughing or sneezing. I have not coughed or sneezed for any reason in over a year. I thank God for the team of doctors and nurses I had but most of all my 2 sons who stuck with me. Be Blessed.
