It has been 1 week since I had a laparoscopic appendectomy. What a breeze this surgery was. I was in and out of the hospital faster than with any of my hip surgeries (9 hours from check in to discharge) and today, one week later, I went out to work (not to see patients but to meetings). Pain was minimal and manageable. It helps that I already have a list of which meds work and which don't and have no qualms requesting the right meds. I had a long talk with the anesthesiologist before hand and things could not have gone smoother. Of course there is always some issue when it comes to me and surgery. In this case I am having some issues with one of the incisions but its not a big deal and should be fine in a few days. Nothing compared to the nightmare I have been through with my hip!
