Hi Everyone,I had my operation on the 23rd of Febuary and went from the theatre (10 hours) into ICU. The operation, Im told wasn't straight forward, a piece of my lung was taken and my appendix. The following day I was moved into the (gastro) ward where it was planned I would stay there until I was discharged. Unforunatley on the first day back on the ward I had my first little walk with the phsyio team and after sitting down my breathing rappidly decreased and I was sent back into ICU for a further 3 days. After that I stayed on the gastro ward until my discharge on the 2nd of March, a total of 8 days! I was origially told at least 2 weeks and up to 4 if there were complications. I have had a terrible cough since the op, has anyone else suffered this? Im finding it hard to sleep, more because of the cough than the op. I was catheterised for 2 weeks which was one of the worst things ever!!!!! I have gradually been put on solid foods as well as peg feeding during the night, so my diet is varied and good. Its been a bit of a bumpy road, I have my good days and bad but I have received 6 star service of the hospital, to who I am most grateful. Sorry for the delay in replying to this forum, but its took time to get into new routines but im getting there. next step results from what was taken and chemo within a 12 week window. How is everyone getting on ?
