|Stone removal & an even bigger biliary tube
||[Apr. 4th, 2013|09:05 am]
Went back to Chez Beaumont on April Fool's day for another attempt at removing my stubborn liver stone.
My surgeon was part of the team this time & it was a success.
I still have a biliary tube, which feels like a garden hose in my stomach, but that's beside the point. Hoping that they will be removing the tube when I go back on Apr 9th for a xray.
I didn't expect to have so much discomfort after the procedure - but Leigh told me that they were pretty aggressive & it probably would hurt a bit. Yowzer ! I had to resort to oxycontin on Tuesday the pain was pretty immobilizing ~ I prefer my Medical marijuana capsules to Oxy, but they take a few hours to work on me, so it's a last resort.
Leigh's brother moved in with us yesterday ~ the dogs are so excited that now there is a new source of snacks & attention :)
I had been walking the dogs daily until I had the liver stone trouble - so I think my brother in law will be able to start up their walk routine again, yay!
