I got home this afternoon. The only negative is that painkillers and I don't get along. They build up in my system, even when taking as directed. I felt much better yesterday than today. I stopped the Dilaudid and switched over to a strong anti-inflammatory for the pain. I got pretty sick after I got home but now I'm feeling better.

Things weren't as bad as initially thought and nothing needed to be cut out. It could just be sutured. Five layers of sutures but better than the alternative. I still can't lift anything for six weeks and have to take it easy. The plus side is that I don't need the liquid diet since they didn't cut the intestine. Anyone want to buy two cases of Vanilla and Chocolate Ensure?

Thanks for all the well wishes. I truly appreciated them.

Take care,
Mike

I'm glad it wasn't as bad as they thought and you won't have to drink Ensure.
