First of all, THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE PRAYERS! WOW! You guys are amazing and I believe they have helped. And THANK YOU Giulia letting group know I am ok.
I am sorta fuzzy yet but they did do the LINX did mesh to fix hernia that was larger than they suspected. Said I have several lesions to my hubby bit didn't say where. I have 5 very small incisions on my tummy that are just now beginning to smart. The worst was the neck/shoulder pain when I woke up in recovery which is from the CO2 they pump you full of. I have a heating pad on it and keep moving it around and sipping warm tea.
I am allowed a regular diet Monday and soft today and tomorrow. It took 20 minutes to eat half cup yogurt, but it did pass through. I have been warned dysphasia will begin week6-12....and the honeymoon phase will be over for awhile. I am following a group who have been through this sharing there experience and while they all say recovery was no fun , they would do it again. I also have talked to a few who have day this done around here and they say the same....a regular diet is no meat, no breads yada yadda. very small meals often. Anyway. The forum I am following id HEALINGWELL.COM and its under GERD and the blogs are under Linx procedure with 9 pages...if your interested.
Smoking I AM SURE aggravated this whole gerd thing for me. I had LA GRADE C/D esophagus and Hills Grade 4 Hernia. Ok I can't see straight. Goodnight. I will be fine but this is a long recovery ahead. I would like tot all about the smoking part of it more when I feel better. Love you all and thank you very much for the prayers
