I posted back in April about my cancelled Nissan operation, well I have now received my operation and was wanting to post my experience so far.
Before the operation I was taking 40 mg omerprazole sometimes more every day.
I got my operation done 6 days ago and can honestly say the recuperation has not been as bad as what I expected. I was operated on laparoscopic and the operation took 2 and a half hours straight after my surgeon said it was a success and I was able to sip a small amount of water. I was then kept in overnight for observation and the worst of my pain was in my shoulders apparently from trapped wind (I still have a small niggle nothing half as bad) I was home for 12:30 pm the next day given instructions to follow a liquid only diet for 2 weeks then slowly introduce food back into my diet. I have not had any acid reflux in the past week and not taken any ppis.
I am still recovering getting ready is a big chore but this will get better each day. Before the operation I looked into the procedure and other people's stories so I was mentally prepared for what was ahead of me.
I know that no two people are the same and would not expect everyone to have the same experience. I am a healthy 36 year old from Scotland and got the operation done on the NHS.
I hope this helps for any one considering the surgery or is going though it soon.
