Sometimes life Isn't fair!!!
I wasn't sure I wanted to post about this. Only a few of you know already but here goes....
I've had some complications from the surgery I had last Sept. I never expected this at all.
On Wednesday I went to see my Dr. for a lump by my belly button. He said it was a hernia, not such a big deal or so we thought. Since my scar was so large my surgeon decided to use a scope to see what was going on inside. Well its seems I had 5 hernias and my intestines had attached themselves to the inside of my stomach lining. Along the bottom of my scar there was an area that recessed in.
So the next AM I had to go in for yet another surgery. My Dr. repaired the hernias and attached mesh over my entire stomach to hold everything in place using 45 pins. He had to cut away tissue from the lower area and pull the skin together, He also had to cut the intestines away from my stomach lining.
I have 8 places on the outside with multiple stitches where it holds everything in place.
It was supposed to be a simple surgery but you know me, nothing seems to be simple these days.
4 hours later I was sent to recovery , they couldn't give me any pain meds because my blood pressure was to low and I wasn't getting enough oxygen. So I spent two hours in excruciating pain until I was stable enough for pain meds. I had to stay overnight. I have a brace to hold everything in plaee for now.
I'm home now and on strong pain meds. Hopefully this is the last of it!!!! Recovery is around 6 weeks.
But I thought you all might be wondering why I won't be posting much.
So yes sometimes life isn't fair. I guess you could say I'm having a pity party these days!!!
