One week from right now I will be on the operating table for stomach surgery for the second time. Last year’s surgery was a disaster and it is not an exaggeration to say that they almost lost me. When my internal sutures burst it was the worst pain I ever felt and I cried like a little girl.
Not only did the surgery not help, but it made all my symptoms worse. Regurgitation in the middle of the night occurs almost daily. The good nights are the ones when I wake up before I inhale it. I don’t remember when I last slept a full night. It has been a long tough year.
My new doctor seems compitent - I wish he had done the first op. I genuinely believe he is going to fix me. Believe it or not, he thinks he can do this laproscopically and I will be out in two days.
But I confess that I’m still apprehensive (this is “tough-man’s” code for terrified.)
And so, I am asking for all the prayers and good thoughts and spells or charms (or whatever else) that you can offer me. Hopefully this time will be easier and even better, hopefully this one will fix me.
