Congrats Selena I’m feeling pretty rubbish to be honest but getting a little better as time goes on.
Had a lot of indigestion type pain post op and today its a bit less but more tummy pain. I’m trying not to use my pain pump today. How are you doing? I managed a small cup of tea well half a one.

That pain is more than likely trapped wind believe it or not. The surgeon pumps your stomach cavity full of it to make it easier to work in there. It often goes up into the shoulders so don’t be surprised if that happens. It will pass. Very gentle walking helps enormously.

Don’t be afraid to use your pain pump – it’s what it’s there for! The easier you find it to move, the quicker you will ‘recover’. Hope you have a good day and thanks for keeping in touch. Your new life has started WOO HOO!
