LIS surgery Feb-11

Postby jenA97 » 12 Feb 2019, 22:33

Went in at 12:15 for my LIS on Monday Feb 11. Surgeon was behind and I did not get in the OR until 4:30. Finally got home and at at 8pm. I had to be intubated and my throat is still driving me crazy but otherwise Im doing well. I have been surviving on Aleve and Tylenol alternating and avoided taking the Percocet. I had a packing in my anus that came out today but I have not pooped yet. Now I am a normal poop every day person but I did not eat at all Monday until late so I think thats part of it. I expect to go tomorrow morning. So far I am pleased that the level of pain at its worst isn't too bad and at its best is basically none. Only about 30 hours out from surgery. He removed the sentinel pile which is nice and I did not expect but Im happy he did. My other 2 skin tags are still there but Im fine with that and he said he was not going to take those. I had a bath today because I was sore after the packing came out.
Tomorrow I want to have a BM. I have eaten enough today that I probably should have one in the morning. Hopefully it goes well. Fingers crossed. I will report back.

Congrats and thanks for coming on to share your story. It sounds like everything went, and is going, very well! I was advised to have several baths (or sitz baths) each day following surgery, and the warm water was very soothing. I'm looking forward to hearing more, as you go.
