Tomorrow Surgery

Posted , 8 users are following.

11 AM preop. 1 PM surgery. About to take my first glass of the preop prep🤢🤮. I'm in good spirits but quite scared. Odd this. Whilst in the military I wasn't scared of much. Anyway lads & lasses this is it, no more pain hopefully. I cannot wait to eat a roast, pizza, or a taco without worrying it'll rip me up. Hope everyone is doing well. Cheers, Jacob.

    Good luck Jacob! I hope you get the results you want and soon will be eating all the foods you miss.

    It is totally normal for you to be scared.

    For those of you lot who've had this surgery will there be a breathing tube? I'm assuming yes. Also, I was told this would be 3+ hours of surgery, however I've also been told in reality it's more like an hour forty-five. Any clarity would be brilliant. Cheers, Jacob

      I didn't have a breathing tube up my nose, though I did have a drain plugged into me for a couple weeks following surgery for blood and fluids to run off.

      Recovery was extremely painful for the first few hours of waking up, but it only gets better once the surgical pain passes, I can confirm I can eat really anything after recovery without pains from surgery back in October!

      Hope you have a speedy recovery!

      So, I'm currently on massive amount of IV painkiller. The surgery wasn't as bad as I thought. I'll update you lot more after the pain subsides. Thank you to all of you for the support🇬🇧👍🏻

      best, Jacob

      Good deal! I was in recovery for 2-3 hours cause the anesthesia blocked my brains ability to block pain, so when I woke up I felt eeeeeverything!

      I was in ungodly pain for 4 hours after waking up, and had a Dilaudid button I could press for two days, but they had to open up my entire chest again.

      Glad your on the other side sir! 😃
