I am home and my parents have come into town to be with me during this first week of recovery. I was able to go home the day after surgery, but they did not let me leave until like 7:30p that evening.
I still have a bit of gas, which can hurt like the dickens when it is in my chest. I know I am getting all of my fluids in that I need and I am getting 42g of protein, though only about 200 cals. Today I was able to add some protein drinks so I was able to get some more calories.
It still hurts to take deep breaths, but I know that will just take time to get better. And last night I kept coughing and that hurt a whole lot.
I will be so happy when the healing part is done...
