Hello Everyone. Just wanted to give an update on my experience so far. I had my Revision to Ds on Monday October 1st with SoCal Kaiser Dr. Belzberg. The surgery went well. It took about 3 hours. A bit longer than anticipated because my small bowel was 800cms in length. Since he uses the Hess method for determining Common Channel length he double checked the length. The stay in the hospital was uneventful in that everything was good wirh my numbers and stats. They called me the overachiever because I walked around the nurses stations about 35 times. I discovered that walking really is the key to jump starting the healing process. I came home Wednesday around noon. Yesterday I started having terrible pain in the area where the drain was located. Called Dr. Office and they said they believe it is irritated and angry and alternate ice and heat and Norco. So I did that and seems better already. This is a big operation that changes the body in a new way. The body is going to be aggravated and bruised and tired. I will continue to keep updates coming.
