Sorry I am just now updating; I spent Wednesday and yesterday resting and wasn't online.
The surgery went perfect! I arrived at 6:30 for registration. They called me back around 6:50 to put my gown on and start my IV. Around 7:20 they gave me a dose of "i don't care" medicine via my IV, that Jay said worked instantly. I don't remember much after that except rolling into surgery and changing beds. The next thing I know, I woke up in recovery! Surgery lasted about 2 hours; they removed my gallbladder first. I was in recovery phase I for about an hour and a half; I'm very sensitive to medicine so it took a bit longer for me to wake up. Once I was coherent enough to move to a chair, I was moved to my main recovery room where my family came back. I was home around 1:00.
Since, I've mostly slept. I've not had much gas at all; what I've had hasn't been painful. My abdomen and incisions have been sore, but only when moving or trying to readjust. I only have 2 incisions outside the one through my belly button; I was surprised. I took a shower today; which was nice! Over all, it's been an easy process. Since Wednesday, I've had a few popsicles and a few sips of beef broth. I've had no appetite and have been comfortable.
I'll update more soon as well as a few pics my husband took. Miss reading everyone's blogs; have fun in Chicago!
