Follow up went great.
FIRST TIME EVER SEEING MY SCARS. DOCTOR SAID I WAS HEALING UP GREAT. STILL HAD A LITTLE BRUISING AND TENDERNESS BUT OTHER THAN THAT I’M RECOVERING WELL. HE TOLD ME IT’S STILL TOO EARLY TO TRY AND FLEX SO I MUST RESERVE MYSELF

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.
