I am 8 hours post op and doing well, albeit drugged up. Everyone here at SJOG has been absolutely wonderful. I have minimal abdominal pain and no shoulder pain.
One of the nurses looking after me said that on a scale of 1 to 10 with sleeve patients with 10 being excellent, I'm that. Yay me!
I'm enjoying the ice chips and sips of water as my mouth is just so dry.
