I hope this works for you also. I have had 7 surgeries, it is scary, but it is over before you know it. God love you, Hope this year is so much better for you. The surgeries for me arent the issue, It's the dogone healing! Happy pain free New Year!

Do not be shy about asking for the pain meds. It not only helps with the pain but helps you to sleep. Nothing much else to do in there.

My incision was from beneath my breast bone to my bikini line many years ago. I stayed 11 days and by the time I left there I was just glad to be going home and able to EAT!! To this day I cannot stand orange popsicles, jello or even the smell of broth. gag - thats al they let me have that entire time..

But you will feel so much better after you recoup. Just remember no lifting. We are very prone to hernias after getting this done. I've had 2 so far and once my stoma prolapsed and another surgery for that. Moved from my left side to right side. So just pace yourself and let the nurses take care of you. Smile

lilbit, wish I would have had that info on hernias about a year ago. I ended up with two of them, 1 upper, 1 lower, at the same time. Good info, I will pass that on to others also. I had no idea. I thought it was just me.

I hope it all goes well for you,Ive had 3 surgeries so far and soon will have my 4th.Ask them to bring the pain meds in every time their available so its easier on ya,I had them just bring the pain meds every 3hrs after surgery and was alot better that way.
