Wishing a good, strong recovery to you. 2007 was my year for dealing with prostate cancer (well, so far). There's life after the operation (and the radiation treatment followups). The thing that'll surprise you is how you don't recognize how unrecovered you were until a lot later.

Anyway, best wishes.

Fails, that is exactly correct. After the surgery i felt a load lift from my mind and knowing the obstruction was gone was a huge relief. Living with this probably made me less of myself. I must have been a rotten grouch. Like my wife says, every day is another day closer to recovery. Keep up the good work on your recovery. Let us both decide not to go anywhere anytime soon ok.

I will have pictures to share with everyone when this is all over. You will all get to see the gory details.

Thanks to everyone for your love and wishes. This forum is an amazing place!

Hello Jeff, I'm fairly new here and don't know you, but it's good to see that Godzilla has lived to wreak havoc on unsuspecting cities!

Peace and good luck with a quick recovery,

Dave

I have been told they will slice this bad boy up and check it for any signs of 'bad' cancer. Otherwise, the waiting is over and the recovery is on! I can stand up and sit down fine, i can walk around the hospital fine. Kneestrikes to the abdomen will hurt i'm sure but sitting in front of my system listening to music will be amazing. This will speed up putting the good chair in the basement. In the meantime, an iTouch provides musical entertainment - Eva Cassidy and ELO have been shuffling all night long. Funny how i chose these two but i am enjoying every minute! I have been told, the sooner i pass gass the sooner the tube comes out.

Masochism, I'm sure, but it did toughen you up for this current round of fun. Good luck on your recovery.

Have your Nurse Laura D. make a little trip "south of the boarder" and pick up a couple of bean burritos

Default passing gas and all that...

my nurse Laura (oops, my wife Laura....), has always told me that the "passing gas" test is to ensure that the "good" microbes and bacteria in your gut are recovering too. Without them, life gets shorter...hence the "parental feeding" tube stuck through your nose and into your gut. So passing gas based on burrito consumption doesn't work... too bad, I'm sure all the Mexican food vendors would love a well publicized health benefit to their "Taco Supreme" or whatever fake Mexican food they push on the public.

Godzilla, a knee strikes will hurt for a while, even laughing can hurt an inordinate amount. Best to push into the abdomen with a hand and push with some pressure on top of the surgery site when you're laughing---you'll still feel "it", but it won't take you to tears. Glad everything is going well for you. A speedy recovery to you.

Everyone should take pictures of their equpment after a hernia operation. You can really scare the ladies with that thing.

PS -- if they installed any "drains" you might want to take a roxicet or whatever else they are giving you for pain -- before the surgeon yanks them out.

When you say 'good' Jeff, in what sense are we talking here... (ahem. Sorry about that.)

Great that you're up & about already. At this rate, you'll be doing marathons before the end of next month.

Get well Jeff.
Working in the medical profession myself I know that the nurses at the internal medicine department are way better than at surgical wards (...). Why, I do not know. You should ask 'em, I can't without raising a lot of questions.
Again, on to a speedy recovery!

I have been visited by two nurses from internal medicine so far. They are wonderful. The surgical nurses tell me they cannot touch the tube down my throat and leave me alone to wait a couple hours breathing as deeply as i could waiting for a surgeon. They cannot find blood veins as easily either. To them i look like some young healthy guy around many much older folks. Does anyone know if the NG Tube can be misplaced and pressing on an artery or my heart or something? I have a lot of difficulty breathing and it's not my stomach. It's the damn tube. I may need it in another 5 days. They took xrays today to see it it may have shifted. Not fun!

Nice BIBs Cheng. It's cool to see wires hang out like frankenstine

Hi Zilla - Good to see that you are getting better By "Baraka" do you refer to this character from Mortal Kombat" ? The staples in his chest are from the result of being split open..... Hmmm That sounds familiar seeing as my "zipper" goes from my throat to my stomach! Most nurses get sxxx from their patients all day - treat them with a little respect and kindness and you will find that it goes a long ways. Of course - being into martial arts you are already aware of such things.

Don't think so. Although you are too far away for a proper diagnosis I can tell you that gastric surgery directly affects the overlying diaphragm: that is what makes breathing quite difficult now. Hang in there for the few days it takes for your gastric sutures to become watertight. Life will become much better afterwards when it can safely be removed (just leave the damn thing in for that period).
