A couple of hours ago, they came took blood pressure, temp and left. Have'nt seen anyone since.
Doing great when first woke up, was in great pain as the epidural wasn't in place they were sticking all kinds pain killers in IV. The anesthesiologist showed up and moved it annd INSTANT pain relief!!! But fell back to sleep with all the added pain killers hitting my system started working so spent a couple extra more hours in recovery. Feeling great like normal with no pain!
Did non-step flatuance when I sat on toilet seat, was worried so that test to leave the hospital is already done.
UPDATE: Spoke with the surgeon today who by the way was shocked that I greeted him from down the hall as he started to enter my room, as I had been walking. He was "You look good, you look really really good", well heck ya, you cut that tumor that was hurting me out, of course I'm doing good :). I asked him about the tumor, he called it a "large mass" and and he said that it wanted to come out of the colon even without surgery it was coming out of the confines of the colon. I now feel VINDICATED in insisting on the surgery :)!
Thanks all for the encouragement s!
