Surgery Done Today

I made it, had both sides done intraorally today. I am in alot of pain, but that’s to be expected when you have both sides done the same time. I will say this though…I have zero pressure in my head or eyes like I have had for years … my head feels so good that’s it’s weird to me lol

Hanging out in the rec room watching TV, and pooch is being all weird, almost like she knows, she will NOT leave my side. Excuse the mess of me in the pic, I just has surgery lol

HOORAY that your annoying symptoms are already gone! That’s such a relief immediately post op!!

I love that you have a faithful pooch to keep you company! I was dogsitting my mother-in-law’s dog when I had my first ES surgery & he behaved the same way - wouldn’t leave my side. I loved the company!

Thank you for sending such great pictures. The sutures in your throat look amazing. They’re so tidy! Your pain & swelling will get worse over the next week so take your pain meds on schedule & suck on popsicles, ice chips, etc., Whatever you can to “ice” your throat as that will help w/ inflammation. I hope your surgeon gave you something to help keep the inflammation at a safe level.

I will pray that your pain stays at a tolerable level & that you heal quickly!

:hugs: Sending a gentle hug!

That is excellent news! I hope you also have a family member or friend there to help you so you can just rest for a week or two & let someone else do the busy work. :wink:

I love the pictures! I really like your “nest”. Don’t leave that spot much for the next week or so. For me, I didn’t want to leave my nest for two weeks. I ate all 3 meals there. I did shower and move around some but I kept landing back in the nest. Take it easy, baby bird!

Adding my hoorays an yippees for you! I’m waiting for doctor right now to hopefully get diagnosis and it’s delightful to hear of people on the way to recovery. I can see myself there one day, but I am glad it is you today!
