Post surgery

Well my surgery was not as easy as expected - my doctor said I had the worst gall bladder he's seen all year.  What was supposed to be a one hour surgery turned into four.  I was at the hospital 10 hours for a day surgery.  It was more difficult to remove due to inflammation and plenty of stones.  It is all removed now though, but the exit hole is larger than planned.  I've got a drain and am in quite a bit of pain in between drugs.  I am taking the next week off from work though and should be improving every day.  I'm hoping I feel well enough soon to watch movies, read books and draw and paint.  We'll see - right now all I want to do is sleep.

Absolutely take time to recover. They always make it sound so easy but it is rarely as easy as it sounds. Listen to your body. Rest and Recoop. Healing thoughts and prayers coming your way.

I'm sorry to hear that it didn't go well, but at least it is out and you really will be feeling better soon.

I am so so so so so so so so sorry to hear the surgery was worse than expected, but oh so so so so glad that it is over and now you are on the road to recovery. I hope the meds help with pain all the time and you suffer naught. I too hope you have lots of time to read and write and draw and paint. Enjoy being a lady of leisure for as long as it takes. Do not go back to work too soon! Hugs from me!!!! Now go back to your napping. xoxo
