The Day After!

It’s the day after my Sleeve Gastrectomy  operation.

Yesterday when I woke up, I didn’t feel too good really but the nurses were amazing and made sure that any pain I was in was managed really well.

I can’t believe that at 9.00am this morning I felt well enough to get up, clean my teeth, have a wash and have a walk around! I even managed to get dressed and sit in a chair rather than having to get back in or on the bed. Someone brought me a cup of tea which was possibly the nicest cup of tea I have ever tasted!

Mr. Ackroyd came to see me this morning at 7:30am and assured me that everything went swimmingly and that there were no complications. So although I feel a little uncomfortable today, I am not really in much pain, the staff are looking after me very well. They are constantly monitoring me and giving me pain relief if I need it.

I am starting a list today, everything I will need to make my food when I get home. I am even treating myself to a new blender! That said, I just don’t feel hungry at all at the moment but I  want to make sure I do everything by the book and follow the advice given to me by the NOSC support team.

I’m feeling a bit tired and groggy, I would think that is normal after a general anaesthetic. I’m really looking forward to getting home and working with the sleeve. Just one more night in in hospital and I’ll be on my way.
