Having Surgery Tomorrow!

Just wondering how long the surgery may take tomorrow and what could I expect once I am home. Did anyone get any sleeping pills afterwards. I have harldly slept through this whole thing. My surgeon would only give me oxycodene which did nothing to help me . Thanks for all your replys and I wish you all well!

Re: Having Surgery Tomorrow!

I was at the hospital at 5 AM. Went into surgery at 6:55 AM. Awake in recovery at 7:35AM. Told at 9 AM I could leave. Was in my bed at home by 10 AM - including a stop at the drug store for pain meds.

Only took them for the first 2 days as pain was not bad. You shouldn't need sleeping pills. Pain meds should handle it.

Eat no fat for 2-3 weeks and slowly introduce it back into your diet.
