New&Improved post op ideas

I decided that there should be some post op changes for everyones benefit.

1.) Patient should be left on PAC pump (preferable demerol)
until they determine otherwise.

2.) Patient should be able to leave the castle only
when they are good and ready. Of course with only the
best nurses.

3) OnQ cathereter(line that goes under your skin that
feeds anesthetic to your insicion inside) should be left
in for at least one month.

4) A World wide 1yr off of work law should be passed
they say it takes 6months-1yr. to feel like ourselves.

5) Automatic slaps in the heads to people with stupid

6) Automatic open door or phone policy with dr. for any

7) Something to please let us SLEEEEEEEEEP!

8) Send you home with the mantras My Swelly Belly is
really beautiful. I am allowed to nurture me and only me
for now!

9) Computers in the rooms with on-line service to chat with
sisters from hysterville.

Please feel free to add your improvements!
