Had my surgery last Thursday ant the lead up was all very scary. I was admitted to hospital the evening before and my op was at 2 Thursday afternoon. Everything went very well and I was sat up with a piece of toast and a cup of tea by 11pm. The following morning the drain was removed and I walked the short distance from HDU to the ward. Had a day and a night there, saw the physio and was discharged and home on Saturday.
So much better and much more comfortable in my own bed. Pain managed with paracetamol and each day feeling a bit stronger. I’ve slept lots and just going with it. See the-consultant in 2 weeks for review and hopefully won’t need any further treatment.
I have been extremely well looked after by everyone involved and can’t thank all the doctors nurses and support staff enough xx
