Post op tips

I’m 5 days post op and want to share some things that have helped me
1. GasX pills for the first few days after every meal. It will help
2. Miralax mixed with a couple ounces of warm apple juice every morning will make having a BM easy. I was able to go by day 4
3. Drink lots of water
4. Every hour take a walk around your house or to the restroom unless you’re sleeping of course
5. Invest in a few nightgowns. While one is in the wash you’ll have a clean one to put on
6. Put bandaids on your incisions while you shower. It will keep the water from hitting the incision directly. Remove them as soon as you’re finished showering.
7. Have AZO on hand for any bladder sensitivity you might have and stay away from soda as it increases that sensitivity
