No Restrictions…

That is what my surgeon said to me at my post-op appointment this morning. I am so happy this is over. I can go back to my normal routine. =) And now really looking forward my vacation in a few weeks.

He did ask me about my arm (it is still sore at the joint but only when I fully extend it). He is not too worried. He asked me about my tongue’s numbness (there is still a spot where I feel tingly). He said it is caused by the tubes they inserted down my throat. I kinda figured that since it feels like a hot coffee burn. It doesn’t bother me as much but I truly hope it goes away soon. He did say to call him if anything comes up. I have his number. =)

I apparently I was the second patient to have NOTES (Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery) done at Northwestern Memorial Hospital . They are currently looking for their third patient. It is an awesome feeling to know that you are helping the medical world to advance. Yay me! =P

  1. YAY! Glad he released you! How cool that you are part of the study. If I were going to have my gallbladder out, I think I would want that procedure. Seems your recovery is much quicker then my coworker who had it done the old fashioned way.
