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!

UPDATE…POST OP DAY 6.
I had a rough weekend, ihad so much pain, 2 stitches on the left broke and i made an ER visit. I’m usually a very happy go lucky person, not an emotional person at all, but I have been very emotional and dont know why lol…So happy I am passed that lol

I am typing this right now from work…yes I felt so great I am back to work after 6 days and I feel great considering what my body has been though. I hope this gives comfort and hope to those waiting for surgery. YOU ALL GOT THIS !!!

Sending well wishes and love to all xox

Thanks for the update Dee. You will continue to heal, but don’t be discouraged by setbacks, which happen to us all.

Thanks for the encouragement for surgery. I will see the surgeon tomorrow for my second surgery.

Sending hugs,
BG

That’s great! And after both sides being done! I would say take it easy…I was quite emotional a few days after my surgery, I guessed it was the relief as it’s all you can think about beforehand? Gentle hugs! :bouquet:

Going well. I over did it this afternoon. My son had some ribs dislocate at school so I drove to pick him up. Then a bit later i drove him 40 min each way to physical therapy to get them put back in. Cant stop being a mom.

Lacy, that must have been scary for you! It is great that you’re already out & about after bilateral surgery! I hope you’re able to get some down time when you need it though.

Also hoping you & your son heal well & quickly!

@Isaiah_40_31 I just had the left side done and then in 6 months we are planning to do the right.

Oops! I confused you w/ another member. Glad you’re putting space between surgeries. Mine were scheduled 6 mos apart but ended up being closer to 9 mos apart. I was glad to be pretty well healed from the first one but was suffering from some pretty severe symptoms from the second one by the time it was removed.
