I'm doing alright on the whole, apparently I looked pretty rough straight after surgery and they put a lot of fluids in (something like 3l in an hour), but I was also sweaty as anything at that point.
First day with taking tiny sips of water was pretty unpleasant, a lot of nausea, burping and hiccuping, but switching round some of the pain and nausea meds made things a lot better. My drip stand now just has some glucose solution and some paracetamol in it, and I should be fine to go home tomorrow.
Been knackered and sleeping a lot, but I suspect that's pretty normal post surgery. Woke up a lot in the night as every time I moved it seemed to tweak where the IV runs into my wrist which hurt enough to wake me up. Haven't been for a shit in the best part of 3 days now, which is weird as hell for me. As I've now started taking on some level of solids (fruit puree and vegetable soup) I suspect that won't last much longer.
