I went in for my surgery Monday at about 10 AM, and was released from the hospital Tuesday before 11. Other than gas pains (nuclear level gas pains) I feel fine. Every once in a while I go in and look at my belly in the mirror (don't tell me I'm not brave!) to convince myself that someone actually poked a bunch of holes in me - really minimal discomfort.
It is astounding to me that doctors could cut holes me, remove parts, patch me up, and send me home in 24 hours feeling no worse than I do. Absolutely astounding!
