๐ŸคขArch-Emesis๐Ÿคฎ


Found this bad boy in my stuff. They didn’t tell me how important this thing would be right after surgery. I experienced “stomach swelling” it happens to some patients right after surgery where the stomach seals shut from the trauma.
I couldn’t keep anything down not even my meds. It was horrible! I had one of these emesis bags sitting with me my whole stay at the hospital. They were worried about my hydration levels and if I was going to do well after I was discharged. I could barely do 2 oz. before I was released.
I’m so glad that storm passed. I am flying through this full liquid phase with no issues at all. Getting in all my fluids and protein. Follow up is Tuesday. Can’t wait to see what the doctor says๐Ÿ˜Š

The Walking Board:


1st day post op I was last on the board. I hadn’t walked any laps. But day 2 came around and I refused to be anything but the leader. On discharge day I walked 6 laps around the floor and I was leading the board. Patient Room 22….that’s me๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ
