First of all, I’m feeling great. I’m 10 days out from my surgery and I’m almost eating like normal. I’ve had tortilla chips, soda, enchiladas, and even pizza once or twice. Am I supposed to have eaten these things? No. But my surgeon doesn’t seem too bothered by it either.
I saw the surgeon today and he seems to think this is his best one so far. I hope he is right. There is always the risk of this procedure failing later on, and right now the life expectency of this surgery’s success is anywhere from 10 years to lifetime. The procedures that are 10 years old are starting to fail, but the process is much different than it was 10 years ago. It isn’t done nearly as tight as it once was and much regard is placed on making sure the patient can burp and potentially even vomit.
Those things might not sound all that exciting to the average joe, but to me they are. I have been reflux free for 10 days and I am ecstatic about it. I never imagined I’d feel this good 10 days out, but I do! My incisions need a few more days of good heeling, but for the most part, I’m in heaven!
To celebrate I am smoking salmon and a pork loin.
