since surgery on Friday to remove my gall bladder and do and esophageal hernia repair -

Don't watch the YouTube video of your surgery - there are some things you just don't want to know

Pain meds are good -and- then they are bad

Getting frustrated trying to crush medications and throwing them in your mouth to chew is a bad idea.

Surgeons don't tell you everything

One can spend a good deal of time contemplating the consequences of putting chicken noodle soup in the blender and eating it

What exactly is the definition of liquid diet anyway?

Is my doctor smarter than Google??

Just how many times can one be expected to answer the question "Did you poop yet?" before snapping the questioners head off?

Oh no!

You poor dear. Did you snap?

The first week or two are always the worst, then you feel better and better.

When I was a teen, I had a friend who was put on a liquid diet when he broke his jaw and had it wired shut. His mother used to cook as normal then just dump his plateful into a blender. She'd call from the kitchen "NICK - do you want your gravy on the meat or potatoes?"

Thanks for checking in. Keep us updated?

So... did you poop yet?

oh you poor dear! Those are some good questions - LOL

Following my diagnosis of bc, I chose not to google or look up videos. Some people love to investigate, research, know every last detail and gauge the "what if's"

Not me.

hope you feel better asap

Two words...stool softeners!!! When I had my hysterectomy my roommate at the hospital wondered why I kept asking for them. Then she asked for some. I unfortunately learned the hard way after my previous surgery.


Let's just hope your doctor didn't Google 'how to' for your procedure.

I hope you have a speedy recovery.

Thanks Ladies - I'm much better and even visited work yesterday for an hour. Of course I needed a nap when I got back home. I may actually go into my scrap room and scrap a bit today.

And yes, I pooped!

Glad you are feeling better!!

Personally, I think I would only want the basic info, and not the whole ball of wax! Watch a video of the surgery?? No thank you!! Just tell me what to do the next couple of weeks and I'm good....

I know ! ! The doc didn't tell me to watch I got curious. They're gonna wrap the what around where?

Much better today - expanding the menu a bit, I stepped up from jello to pudding !

Still haven't made it to the scrap room, but I don't think I can blame that on the surgery. ;-)
