Re: help my bellybutton is stuck

THanks Nancy
Today I am up moving around much more. Feeling a lot better. I don't know why, I am feeling so much better, but Im still going to take it easy. Tomorrow makes it a week.
I have to go to the cardiologist, because I had an abnormal EKG reading prior to my G/B surgery. I am very nervous about that.

My symptoms now, are still bellybutton (have to get some peroxide). Ocassional sharp pains and soreness in the G/B area. Soreness around incisions, and some pains if I move the wrong way.
How are you feeling??

Dani

Re: help my bellybutton is stuck

Im doing pretty good today. Although I went for a walk last night and that kinda did me in-shouldn't have done that. The percocet is starting to make me feel funny so I need to get off that now.

Otherwise I am laying around today-been on the computer doing some stuff as well. Im glad you are feeling better though!! Ill be a week on Friday. Did you see your dr anyway?

Re: help my bellybutton is stuck

Try some baby oil on the q-tip for the belly button issue. I clean mine that way all the time.

Re: help my bellybutton is stuck

Nal- I saw the surgeon and he had me go in for a HIDA scan yesterday, I havent heard back. No news is good newS? The nuclear med tech said it looked good to her....

You are taking percocet? No wonder you are feeling better than me! I havent taken pain meds because they made me vomit!
Take it easy, there will be a difference without taking any pain meds, maybe you should switch to tylenol, and half your regular dose of percs. then to tylenol then nothing when you are ready!!
I did take a darvocet (much less potent than perc) and it helped me fall asleep. I will probably do that again tonight.

Titch-
I don;t have baby oil either! Im so scared its going to come open and my guts are going to come out. Im a scardy cat of everything. Ill have to get this stuff outta here though, its disgusting.

Thanks girls
Dani
