Surgery was Thursday.
I made it!
It went even better than they had expected, good to hear.
Spent whole night in recovery room, NOT a restful place to recover.
Back in my room since yesterday.
Can't do freaking much of anything. Every movement, cough or deep breath is agony due to super long scar that goes across entire upper abdomen. Also severe back pain and spasms triggered by the type of OR table used.
They think they're getting me out of this bed and into a chair today; I think they're nuts.
I can drink liquids only for the moment. They seem very concerned about am I farting or not, as a litmus test of when I can start eating solids.
So many doctors and nurses I have given up trying to remember names.
Food here sucks. But I can't eat it anyway. I win.
