Recovery progress for TVH on May 7

My TVH was on Wednesday May 7th. I was soooo scared. They gave me Versed in the holding room to "calm my nerves". Last thing I remember was them wheeling me into the OR and telling me to scoot over on the table. I told them not to let me fall off. And that is all I remember till I woke up in recovery. I stayed groggy for awhile. But I never once had to push the button on the morphine pump. They were amazed. The only soreness I really had at first was getting up to walk cause my legs were so sore from being in the stirrups. I felt like I had been riding a horse for a long time. But after several walks that helped. I just got out of the hospital today cause they kept me an extra day cause I ran a temperature Thursday night. But other than getting around slowly, I feel GREAT!!!!! Thanks to all of you on here, and now I can say, it was not as bad as I thought it would be!!!!! Glad it is over. Hope everyone else's went just as smooth!

My experience was much like yours. The last thing I remember in the OR was the nurse telling me to scoot over to the table. I remember getting one foot over to the table, but that's all I remember. I felt great when I came home, but then the gas and bloating set in and it was very uncomfortable! I ended up with a parial bowel obstruction from the surgery. Make sure you drink lots of water, take your Gas-X, and be careful with your food choices so you don't get extra gas. Good luck with your recovery.
