I went down to theatre at 7.34am and was fully awake being wheeled back to my room at 10.00am 😊.

I've has a little pain... more of a heavy feeling in my upper stomach and been burping which is a little bit uncomfortable other then that everything has gone fine... did my first injection this morning as well 😊.

Thanks guys for all your pre op advice x
