Hey everyone! I am back from the big house. Day 5 post op and I hurt like crazy. It wasn't the planned surgery we thought and that's why the pain. The reversal went very well and that part is not at all painful. The hernia part was way worse than we knew and turned a 3 hr surgery into into 6 or 7 hrs. What the Dr discovered was a lot of scar tissue binding my intestines together and hernias everywhere. Why it did not hurt before surgery ,I do not know, but am making up for it now. All my numbers were good after and had very few meds while hospitalized. Right now have next to no appetite and have to make myself eat. Also woke up with a belly binder holding my midsection together. It is my security blanket now as you cannot believe how much more it hurts without. Will talk more later.
