I survived having WLS in Mexico! Over all it was a good trip. The surgical center was clean & modern, the staff was nice. They didn’t speak as much English as I was lead to believe, but we got by. K had her gallbladder taken out too, and she had a lot more pain than I did. There were a lot of little stressors that could have been avoided.
We really needed to stay a 2nd day in the recovery house. K developed a migraine after surgery and couldn’t keep anything down. I was a bit disappointed as to how that was dealt with too.
I’m currently having a touch of buyer’s remorse as I mourn the loss of food(at least for a while) and don’t feel so great. It’s hard to swallow more than about a quarter of an oz. at a time right now, mainly due to the inflammation in my neck/throat from being intubated. Today it’s a bit better and I’m enjoying some watered down apple juice 🙂
Now off to take a nap! More later 🙂
