This is my update on my (http://csn.cancer.org/node/251526). Ok, I made it home yesterday (Thursday) afternoon (driving alone). Had my surgery endoscopically on Sunday noon; woke up to find myself in my bed. Things felt great. I was connected right away, walking around at the doc’s instructions. Many internal movement of gases, and doctor said nothing will be said until I pass gases and stool. The movement of gases up and down felt so miserable for a long while till I was able to meet the requirements late Monday and early Tuesday. Once those gases found their way out, it was a wonderful relief. Pain was tolerable and subsided with time and walking exercises (spent most of the time moving while there, nothing else to do: no computer connection). On Tuesday they told me I will be discharged late Wednesday or early Thursday, meanwhile I should be up and moving. They scheduled my clinic visit to see the results of the histology and discuss treatment in 10 days (on Saturday).
Today I enjoyed going to the bathroom.
Now I am reviewing all the great responses you’ve accorded my questions; I surely appreciate any thing you may think of in terms of treatment or possible areas I should discuss in my visit. You’ve all been a great help. Thank you and Happy Holidays.
