I'm probably just being a whimp........

Post  Absinthe Angel on Sun Sep 27, 2009 11:35 pm

but I could really use some extra energy and strength tomorrow (monday) between 10:30 am and noonish. Here's the deal.

I have another post surgery appointment. Some of you know that I still have the 'T' tube in me from the surgery. They removed the 'J' tube a week ago and it hurt like a MO FO went they pulled it out. I almost passed out from the pain!

Well torrow they will be injecting a contrast die into the 'T' yube so they can get some scans of my liver and the bile ducts they reconstructed. They will be checking to see that everything is functioning normally since the surgery. If the scans look good, they will pull out the 'T' tube.

Now, they tell me that it shouldn't hurt "as bad", because the T' tube is smaller in diameter than the 'J' tube was. But I'm still really stressed out about it. Mind you, I want this sucker out of me. I'm tired out it getting caught on my clothing. I'm tired of the suture abcesses. I'm tired of the general pain that it causes, etc. But I'm still freaked out about the fact that it might hurt like the 'J' tube did.

So, if you could muster a little bit of extra energy and bravery to send my way, I'd really appreiate it.

Thanks tons!

Thank you SO very much to all of you for your prayers and extra energies sent today.
Everything went better than I could have hoped for. The scans came in beautifully, with the liver and bile ducts working superbly. And I am finally free of the 'T' tube! Yea!!!

There was some discomfort when they injected the contrast, but minimal pain when they pulled the tube. I can't even describe the relief I felt when it was all over and I realized that I had not endured the kind of pain that was involed when they removed the 'J' tube. The two experiences just did not even compare! I'm so happy to finally be free of all the tubes:)

The surgeon said that I do still need to be patient though. That due to the extent of the surgery, I still have a long road to recovery and it will be another 8-12 months before my body has recovered from the trauma. But I have a clean bill of health now and I can leave for Maui in 2 weeks and do whatever activites I feel comfortable doing. Woohoo!!! That is a releif. We have had this trip planned for a year. It is in celebration of our 25th anniversary and I didn't want us to have to cancel because of my health.

Thanks again to you all for all the support Smile

Hugs & Blessings,
Donna
