I came home early yesterday afternoon after maybe 30 hours in the hospital. Once i was in my own room I was doing okay. I didn't mind the hospital stay but i didn't like the anesthesia and breathing tube in my throat and lungs. I woke up after surgery to find the breathing tube still in my throat and freaked out because no air was coming out just the pipe was there. I pulled it out myself after coughing bad. I was also clawing the anestheoloist. when I learned the surgery was over i calmed down but was left with guck in my throuat and a bad cough that hurt my whole body when i coughed. Basically the nursing staff was excellent and very helpful to me.
Day of surgery i was sipping 1 oz. cups of water every 15 minutes. had protein shake and a taste of tomatoe soup. Now I am drinking or sipping Protein supplements, water, broths, strained cream soups with no clumps, jello and sugar free popsicle.
efore surgery my diabetes was way out of wack. Just before surgery ti was 295 and i was given 6 units of insulin and all through the hospital stay. Today and msot of yesterday on no meds my FBS was 125. I'm pleased with that. I am ot on any meds at all for 2 weeks i will go for blood work and then to see my Dr. and see what she thinks.
I've only had 1 pain pill. slept pretty good last night.
thank you for all of you wo have been concerned.
