Surgery Update

Sorry for just now posting an update. Briefly, here is a quick update: The surgery was successful and was able to be performed laproscopically. However, I am in a tremendous amount of pain and are taking pain meds around the clock. I have 4 small incisions and most of the pain is around this area. i also have pain in my shoulders, which I was told this is due to the air they put in your stomach during the surgery.

This amount of pain was totally unexpected and I hate it. I'm so uncomfortable. I haven't been able to eat, so I am on IV fluids continuously. The surgery team has released me, but the transplant team wants me to remain in the hospital until the pain is better and I am able to eat and gain some weight. I am very uncomfortable and very frustrated.

I'm praying tomorrow will be a new day, and I will feel tons better! I will try and post another update tomorrow. This is the 1st time I have felt like being on the computer. Thank you for your prayers!

I realize I don't have the complications that you do, but my gallbladder surgery was completely more painful than I thought it would be as well. I had already been through 2 c-sections and thought it would be a cake walk. I know I sound like Debbie Downer! My intention is just to let you know that it's normal, and it will go away. Praying for you...
