Home from the hospital

Came home today after my liver resection on the 12th. No major complications. I required a lot of pressers during the 8 hour procedure which is my biggest slow down. I gained 40 pounds of fluid in a day. This is really uncomfortable but is abating with medication and walking. Though I’m sore and tired I feel so very fortunate to have reached this point. I have an absolute stellar team of caregivers here in Portland, Oregon. This board is a godsend as well. So much info and compassion. Special thank you to Stu who’s Mums story is similar to mine and who’s input here has been reassuring and calming for me. I’ll jump in more as I heal. Peace and health to all.
