Wishing you a smooth operation and quick recovery, you'll be over the next few days before you know it.

Hey guys, just popped by to join in. 

I found that I had to sleep on my back for about 3-4 days after I got out of hospital, as when I laid on my side the stitches/incisions pull a bit.  You'll know what's best for you depending how your cuts and guts feel.

I was also advised to crush my tablets, but I had to find out which ones were 'allowed' to be crushed.  Had to liaise with the surgeon/chemist to figure it all out.

Is it tomorrow you go in?

I found I could sleep on my side with a pillow propped under my tummy.

Can you sleep on your side or is it flat on your back?

I had the same question and I'm lucky enough that I have time to wean off some and the others won't matter just for the short time that I'll be swollen.  I'm hoping and praying they tell you the same :)

Right after I woke up I had a sip of water.
Right after that I had to start taking pills every couple of hours.  So funny, they'd tell me what they were & I'd go yep yep, swallow & back to hitting that pain button !!!
Sleep & repeat.

Depends on your surgeon and you may have to crush or cut down size.  Make sure you discuss with the doctor.  Who is doing your surgery?
