I had my surgery this morning

Postby suzyljank » 26 Apr 2013, 16:44

Hi, I'm in the hospital , I might be here fore a few days. Turns out my scar tissue was really bad. I had double flap surgery. The doctor scraped away the scar tissue on two sides and slid a piece of new tissue into it's place. Where he took the donor tissue he left it open to regenerate new skin. He did this so there was no tension on the flaps. He said this was going to be a painful recovery and they will doing whatever is need to manage it. I' e already had few cring episodes( just me feeling sorry for myself). I just got some meds in my IV so I'm going to try to get some sleep. Thank you to everyone for all of your kind words. Suzy

Suzy,
It's so good to hear from you . I've been thinking so much about you today and didn't think we'd hear from you for awhile. I'm so glad your surgery went okay and that at least you have the anxiety of the decision and preparation over with. I know it must feel scary and so big and overwhelming right now so fresh from your surgery and all the healing that is to come. But it sounds like you have an excellent doctor who is really keeping your pain levels as you recover in the forefront of his mind. It's also a relief to know you will be in the hospital to be cared for round the clock and given the medicines you need in your IV.
We're here for you in the ways we can be via the Internet. Spill the tears when you need to.
Sending you a big hug and cheering you on through your recovery.

All the best to you, Suzy. Sounds like a tough start, but I hope your healing goes well. I agree with JR, at least you have the lead-up done with now - hope you're in a place where you get some good care and catch a little good luck, too.
PS - I just saw in your other thread you were cooking to keep yourself busy in the lead-up. I'm glad to see I'm not the only other person that does that!

Thank you. I'm hurting right now. They gave me dilaudid but it made me to nauseous. I'm taking toradol and acetametaphine right now and I can have Valium if I spasm. I'm grateful they are keeping me in the hospital to work my meds out. Since I have 2 flaps finding the right position is hard. I just have to suck it up and take it one day at a time I guess. Thanks again everyone. Suzy

Suzy,
If you're still having trouble with nausea and you need stronger pain medication, Zofran is an anti-nausea medication that can be given along with your pain medicine .
I hope you're finding you're able to get as much sleep as possible.
Thinking of you and wishing you well as you head into your next day of recovery.
